|Please help me save a life!!|
|2 years ago when I started at the AHA I had no idea how personal my job would get and what it would mean to me after only 2 short years. I have had the privilege to meet some of the strongest and most amazing and giving people, I have had the opportunity to gain new friends who will be lifelong friends and I have also unfortunately seen how heart disease can affect those we love the most. Last week the mission became even more personal to me and my family. My 62 year old father who underwent quadruple bypass just 3 1/2 years ago is having heart issues again and we just learned he is not a candidate for a stent. Now we wait and follow up with the surgeon to find out what our options are. We learned after his first heart surgery he is not a good candidate for another open heart surgery. The one thing I keep hearing over and over is that his surgery was 3 years ago and who knows what advances have been made in those 3 years...that's where my job gets real!! The money we raise for the 2014 Heart Walk will go to that research, education and will help to SAVE LIVES!! Please help me raise as much money as we can to help save the lives of the ones we love the most.|
My dad aka Papa BooBoo is the most important man in my life (along with Dylan of course) and is hands down the best grandfather out there!! I know we have a long road ahead with his heart disease but I will do everything I can to raise the money and awareness to keep him around for a very long time. I have decided to personally try to raise $3,000 for the 2014 Greater Dayton 5K Heart Walk/Run...can you please help me get there?! Help me to save the lives of the ones we love the most!!
