I have a soft spot for helping and when a friend's 7 year old daughter joined HeartWalk For The American Heart Association to raise funds for research, I was touched.
It doesn't matter how young or old you are, it seems everyone has been affected by heart disease. I know I have. So here's more on what she's doing. Check out the website link below, and donate to her, or her team to help raise funds, it's really important!
The American Heart Association is the largest voluntary health organization working to prevent, treat and defeat heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases.
These diseases devastate millions of people of all ages and kill more than 910,000 Americans each year.
To fight cardiovascular diseases, the association supports research, education and advocacy and helps heart disease and stroke patients. Research we've funded has led to such major advances as: - CPR - bypass surgery - artifical heart valves - pacemakers - clot-busting drugs - high blood pressure medication
Each year we train more than 9 million emergency medical services personnel, healthcare professionals and citizens in Emergency Cardiovascular Care. Millions of volunteers and supporters all across America help us help fight heart disease and stroke and make it possible for all people to live longer, better lives.
