My friend Erica has had serious heart issues all her life. My friend Brittany has a sister (who also is a friend of ours) that has had serious heart issues as well. My reason for wanting to participate is because in 2001 my dad died of Focal Myocardial Fibrosis, a type of heart disease.
This cause if allowing us to bring awareness to how many people are affected by cardiovasuclar diesase as well as raising funds to help doctors and researchers frind a cure or prevention.
I'm actually writing about this, because while I know many of us don't have the funds to give (although, if you do want to make a donation, you can do so here and it would be VERY much appreciated) but because I'm asking for your help in another way.
If you live in the Jacksonville area, come out and join our walk!!! It's only a mile and there is entertainment, and it's a great way to show support.
If you don't live in Jacksonville, just your prayers and kind thoughts would be much appreciated!
