THE STORY:

Hello all! Thank you for visiting my page! When I was a little girl, my grandfather had a bypass, he survived. We were fortunate to have him for years because of the successful surgery. My grandmother underwent heart surgery, we were fortunate to keep her after for many years. In middle school, my father suffered a heart attack, and once again, I was blessed to have him in my life for many more years. In June of 2013, my father had to undergo a double bypass, an I was terrified, but once again, he was given another chance at life. The doctors of Pittsburgh are innovative and esteemed, having provided my family personally with many opportunities and I am eternally grateful. My boyfriend and his friends serve as cardiac perfusionists in south florida and I hear about countless surgeries, bypasses, transplants, children saved, life support sat, and I know how crucial the American Heart Association's funds are to furthering the success in this field, and for our hearts. I challenge you to join this cause, my cause. Please help me not only reach, but exceed my goal, and your money will go toward future generations of heart research and progress. I also promise to wear my fund with pride at the greatest city on earth'a half marathon on May 7th. I will be easy to spot, I will be wearing head to toe red. Gratefully yours, Jillian Gaygan.

Currently, heart disesases are the #1 killer of Americans and stroke doesn't fall far behind at #5.  1 in 3 women will die of heart disease.  Stroke is the leading cause of disability in the United States.  What people don't know, is that heart disease is 80% preventable.  Physical activity and a healthy diet can help prevent you or your loved ones from suffering from either of these terrible diseases.  Join the AHA/ASA marathon team and help us create a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.  For every $1 that is raised in the Greater Pittsburgh Region, $3 is allocated back to research and advocacy right here in Southwestern Pennsylvania.  There is currently over $13 million invested in research in Pittsburgh - help us get one step closer to ending heart disease and stroke.  You can make a difference!
