Heart Health & COVID-19 Community Conversation

  • What COVID-19 may do to the heart even after recovery
  • How to access care and/or telehealth services
  • Tips and strategies to support health and wellness with resources from the American Heart Association

Stories of the Heart

Veronica Cardello was 27-years-old when she suffered a stroke. In 2019, Veronica was in the shower when her vision got blurry, and she lost feeling in her right side. When she went to speak, no words came out. Her family found her on the floor. She was rushed to the hospital where doctors discovered a hole in her heart. Since then, Veronica has fully recovered and is spreading awareness that strokes don’t discriminate.

Community Impact Corner

Keeping kids healthy, active, entertained and occupied through the pandemic can be challenging, but the American Heart Association’s Go Red for Women Campaign in Stark and Wayne Counties has been committed to helping to make a difference in the lives of our local students. 

Thanks to local sponsors, Midwestern Industries and Chip Painter and Lisa Turkalj-Painter, every student at Franklin Elementary School in Massillon and Gibbs Leadership School in Canton received a jump rope to take home. Along with the jump ropes, each family received of book of Healthy for Good information, providing them with education around blood pressure, nutrition and physical fitness for both adults and kids.
