Hi Alana. I am from T.C. (east side cherry farm and Central grad 2005) and now living out on the east coast. Last year I suffered an Aortic Dissection type B, the same that John Ritter perished from and I read in the Record Eagle she works with Dr.Dianna Milowicz who I was in contact with. I started a fundraiser on Crowdrise and saw she joined. I have some questions for her, and given Life's remarkable and mysterious small world, I would love to get involved with spreading the word of this terrible and very deadly disease, and I would also like to find out if I can help in the NYC marathon as I live close to it. Thank you, and I apologize for the random message, but life is too short. John Pulcipher, age 25

CROWDRISING SINCE: May 14, 2012
Stuff About Me:

I am a genetic counselor with the John Ritter Research Program at the University of Texas Houston.  I have never run a marathon before but was presented with a wonderful opportunity to raise awareness for aortic disease by running the NYC Marathon on Team Ritter for The John Ritter Foundation. So I thought, "Why not begin my marathon career supporting something so important to me?!"  I feel honored to be a member of Team Ritter and to have the opportunity to run with the rest of my Ritter teammates who all have the same passion to raise awareness for aortic disease.

Through my experience working with individuals and their families affected by aortic disease at UT, I have seen many people lose family members and loved ones to aortic dissections too early in life.  Now we know that with education and awareness about one's family history and the risk factors for aortic aneurysms and dissections, these premature deaths are preventable which is extremely powerful information! I am looking forward to the NYC Marathon in November of 2012 and the road to raising awareness and promoting research for aortic disease along the way!
