This is my second year participating at the Lawyers Have Heart 5K. I am running in remembrance of my grandfather, Juan Cano, who suffered from a massive stroke that left him permanently disabled. Two years later, in 2000, he passed away when he was 80 years old. Unfortunately, at the time of his stroke, the people he was with were not knowledgable about symptoms of a stroke and he did not get help he needed right away. I am appreciative of the AHA campaigns that have taught our communities the signs of a stroke and thus, eliminating the number of stroke victims left with severe, permanent disabilities.
Thank you for supporting American Heart Association. Your contribution is greatly appreciated.
