On September 3, 2005 my husband, Jim, passed away in his sleep. This was one day after his 45th birthday. He left me with two young daughters who were 15 and just shy of 12 on that day. After 7 months of waiting we were finally informed, by the medical examiner, that he had passed away because of Hypertensive Cardiovascular Disease. This occurred as a result of untreated high blood pressure. In the years that have followed my girls have grown and blossomed into wonderful young ladies that want to spread the word about this disease. The way that they have decided to do this is to walk in this years Heart Walk in Boston, Mass.
The easiest way for you to help fight heart disease and stroke is to make a donation to this worthy cause. Any amount, no matter how large or small will be used to make a great difference in the life of someone. If we can save one person's life so that their children do not have to suffer the same kind of loss that these girls did, it will be well worth it.
This is the link to my oldest daughter's page. If you could make a donation it will mean so very much to so very many people.
