Do you know where you stand?

In America, 116.4 million adults have high blood pressure - and too many have no idea. Left undiagnosed, the condition can lead to heart attack or stroke. Help stop the “Silent Killer” by getting checked and making a generous gift to help a loved one in need.

Making a Difference in Under-resourced Communities

For Nan Murphy, a routine physical in 2012 became anything but when she suffered a heart attack during the exam and was transferred to the catheterization laboratory (cath lab). Physicians discovered Nan had Type 1 diabetes, as well as bradycardia or a heart rate that’s too slow. Today, Nan continues to fight fatigue and strives to live a healthy lifestyle. She also works to help others gain access to much-needed medical resources and education.

Educating Others About Stroke and AFib

When Anthony King began his daily workout routine on November 1, 2018, he felt lightheaded and dizzy. Realizing it was serious, Anthony called 9-1-1.

Warning Others to the Dangers of Vaping

As with too many teenagers, Katie Bertram's addiction to vaping began with the sweet kiss of an e-cigarette. That first mango-flavored nicotine rush in 2018 began an eight-month ordeal for the 19-year-old that ended only when she underwent hip surgery and determined to quit cold turkey.
