I don’t believe our genes should be our destiny, and that’s why I am fundraising for 2020 Ride for Heart. Your donation will push forward life-saving research like this and more and fund incredible breakthroughs to create more survivors of heart disease and stroke!
It was always apparent that family history played a role in our risk factors for heart disease and stroke. But despite significant advances, we only know 20-30% of the genes involved. With the right funding, doctors predict they could unlock the genetic puzzle behind cardiovascular disease.
Raising funds for Ride for Heart is very personal to myself and my husband who is a heart attack survivor. His recovery was a long one, fraught with setbacks. We are very fortunate to have him with us today, a survivor and fighter, leading a fullfilling and active life because of the knowledge, dedication and devotion of everyone in his cardiac unit.
I hope to be able to attain my goal and do my part in furthering necessary research so that others may be given a chance at life and experience the Happy Ending we were blessed with.
Please help me with my fundraising goal and make a donation today.
