I walk because I know that with every step, I’m making a difference in someone’s life.
My personal story is my LAD artery (the widow maker) was found to be 96% blocked and required an immediate heart stent via angioplasty. The recovery room nurses told me I might not have been as lucky if I had waited even another week to come in.
Just last week, one of my dearest and best friends died from a possible heart issue. No signs, no risk factors, nothing. Totally unexpected. It's devastating to lose someone like this and increases the worry for myself as well as I've becoming a bit laxed in my own recovery/wellness routine.
