Elizabeth Greene, AHA speaker and You’re the Cure advocate, suffered a heart attack at age 35.
“I was seven months pregnant with twins when I had my heart attack. Fortunately, I was already at a hospital that had a very good cardiac unit. My girls were fine, and I am too, thanks to the cutting-edge treatment I received. Now I serve as an AHA regional spokesperson, and I love being part of the You’re the Cure network.”
Be a part of the cure. Be an advocate.
You don't have to be a doctor to save lives. Just be willing to deliver a lifesaving message to public officials whenever you can.
You're the Cure when you speak up for vital research funding. Or when you advocate for public policies that advance the fight against heart disease and stroke. That's why You're the Cure, a nationwide network of people dedicated to finding a cure for heart disease and stroke, needs your talent and time...now!
