I just registered for the Central Jersey Heart Walk on Sunday, October 21, 2012 at Johnson Park in Piscataway, NJ, will you help fight the cause?
Seven years ago, back on July 16, 2005, my dad had a heart attack. That day is forever engraved in my mind and was the scariest day of my life.
Sure he changed his lifestyle and eating habits afterwards, but wouldn’t it be nice to have prevented it from happening in the first place?
I’m walking for my dad, but more importantly I am walking with the hope that others won’t have to go through what my dad [and our family] went through!
Did you know that cardiovascular disease is the number one killer of all Americans? And that heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined? I would have never thought that heart disease would top [breast] cancer in women!
