May 15th is the American Heart Walk in Wausau! Our family will be walking in Honor of our Children – Both Zak and Callie have pulmonary Stenosis which means the valve that pumps blood to the lungs is thickened reducing blood flow. Zak’s heart has been getting better as he grows, but Callie’s has been getting worse. At her 1 year checkup we were told for the first time her heart stabilized, which means it did not get worse. We go to the doctor every 3 months praying to hear it is getting better. We also walk in honor of Grandpa George and Aunt Judy who are very near and dear to our hearts and Family and Friends with heart disease or a history of strokes.
It’s personal. With heart disease and stroke taking more lives than the next seven causes of death combined, you can’t help but make it personal. We are walking in the American Heart Association Start! Heart Walk for those already affected, and we are walking to make sure that everyone is aware of their personal risks, to create hope that we can make someone else’s future bright.
Our personal goal is to raise funds for the American Heart Association and we need your help to reach our donation goal. We are raising critical dollars for heart disease and stroke research and education. You can “walk with us” by making a donation online by May 14th. Click on the link below and you will be taken to our personal donation page where you can make a secure online credit card donation. The American Heart Association's online fundraising website has a minimum donation amount of $25.00. If you prefer to donate less, you can do so by sending a check made payable to the American Heart Association directly to us.
