Share Your Story - Eastern States

Images of Survivors and Caregivers

At the American Heart Association and American Stroke Association, we want you to experience more of life's precious moments. To do that you must be healthy in heart and mind. And until there's a world free of heart disease and stroke, we'll be there, working to make a healthier, longer life possible for everyone. Why do we do what we do? Life Is Why.

Why do you choose to live a healthy lifestyle? What moments do you live for? We want to hear your why. Perhaps you or someone you care about suffered from heart disease or stroke. Maybe you know someone whose life was impacted by CPR or changed through a healthier lifestyle. Whatever your experience may be, sharing your story is a great opportunity to give hope to others experiencing a similar situation or to inspire others to live a healthier life.

We often get requests from media, companies, schools, and others on a variety of heart and stroke related topics, for individuals to share their story. We're always interested in hearing new stories and we hope to hear from you. If your story fits a request made to us, we will contact you and ask for your permission to use your story or for you to come share your story. We do not share this information without prior permission from you. Thank you in advance for your help as we work together in the fight against heart disease and stroke.
