Leading with Survivors
Piper is dancing her way through life. She just had another successful surgery this summer amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Her parents share how they are inspired by her every single day, but they are not in the clear yet.
Our legislative and regulatory priorities help to mitigate risk factors and protect survivors in communities across the country. We advocate for federal, state and local policies that help Americans build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke.
