Walking to Mend Broken Hearts

You can Become a Lifesaver Today!

I am participating in the American Heart Association’s Heart Walk, and have set a personal goal to raise funds that are needed for critical cardiovascular disease research and education.  I joined a team sponsored by my employer and will walk with them on Saturday, May 19, 2012, starting at nine o’clock in the morning.  I just wish Apollo could join my walk in memory of Roxy.  Instead, I’ll be walking in memory of my grandmother, Doris (Hodge) Andrea, who passed away (congestive heart failure) two years ago this June, on her birthday.   She would have turned ninety this year.

With the click of a mouse you can make a secure, tax-deductible online donation. You will not only be supporting me, you will be funding the fight against the No. 1 killer of Americans. Click here to be taken to my personal donation page.

Did you know that heart disease claims the lives of more people than the next 3 leading causes of death combined? Here is how your online donation will help:

  • $25 gives 50 people educational materials that teach them how to personally reduce their risk of heart diseases and stroke
  • $50 delivers the message of healthy nutrition to elementary school students through lesson plans and activity guides
  • $100 allows one hospital to teach its patients, caregivers, and health professionals about the risks of stroke – the nation’s No. 4 killer

Chances are you or someone you know has a connection to heart disease or stroke – forward this blog post to your friends and family.

Thank you, in advance, for your support!
