Made the American Heart Association Homepage!

Well, I didn’t expect this—to be on the homepage of the American Heart Association. I did an interview for an insert in the February issue of Kansas City Magazine for “Heart Month” but it wound up being used by the national AHA, too.

Sharing my story feels very good. Women need to know about the risk factors for heart disease. I was one of those people who never dreamed it would happen to me, and certainly not at such a young age. My life has changed due to my event, but women shouldn’t wait for an event to happen. Exercise and eating a healthy diet is important for every woman at every age.

Happy Heart Month!
