I walk because of my daughter with a congenital Atrial Septal Defect, or ASD. She underwent repair with an Amplatzer device in a cath lab procedure last year after undergoing monitoring due to early diagnosis. I also walk because my dad had an late diagnosed ASD that led to heart failure and an early death at 40. Had he had access to early monitoring and intervention, he would have had an opportunity at a completely different lifestyle and life expectancy. I walk because I know that the awareness and funds raised goes to helping others obtain care and prevent detrimental effects of heart disease and stroke.
