4 yrs ago, My dad felt a slight chest pain during his walk around the golf course. That discovery lead to a 5 bypass heart surgery. Yes, they exist! I've always thought of my parents having extremely healthy diets but I knew they lacked physical exercise. They are doing a lot better these days with various forms of exercises, even some that inspire me (ballroom dancing). My dad's doing a lot better now after a very lengthy recovery. But from that day onward, I took a pledge to be more physically active and look after my heart health.
As most of you know, I've participated in the Hearth & Stroke Ride for Heart for many years (this will be my 7th). I've raised quite a bit of money each year and I can't thank all my supporters enough. I'd like to ask everyone here on FB to help me out again this year - Anything counts! But above all, I'd like to encourage you all to look after your hearts. Be well my friends!
