My Walk is Why!
Hearts and Soles was formed in 2010. We were established to offer support to my wife who was diagnosed with end-stage heart failure at the age of 44. In the months that followed she was hospitalized 11 times with heart failure. In 2011 she received LVAD, which bought her some extra time to wait for a donor heart to become available.
In January 2013 she received her new heart at Mass. General Hospital. For over six years she has been living a normal life thanks to her donor. We participate in the AHA Boston Heart Walk to give a little back to the AHA, the nurses and doctors at MGH, and Boston EMS, who worked so very hard to keep Tracie alive, and for those who suffer from heart disease so that they too may have a future.
