THE STORY:

On October 9, 2013, my father had an angiogram that showed his widow maker (the left anterior descending or LAD artery) was 90% blocked. The term "widow maker" is used because if the LAD is abruptly or completely obstructed it will cause a massive heart attack and likely lead to sudden death. The doctor's immediately inserted a stent, a small mesh tube that's used to treat narrow or weak arteries. It saved my dad's life! The months that followed my dad's procedure included cardiac rehab and a change in diet. Today, he is feeling great and is back to work farming his fields in North Central Iowa.

This June, I will participate in the Move Your Phi't 5K Run/Walk to raise funds to support Alpha Phi Foundation's vital programs, especially its heart health initiatives. That's because 1 in 3 Americans have some form of cardiovascular disease, and heart disease kills more women than all cancers combined. I will walk for my dad, I will walk for my own health, and I will walk to save more lives.

As a member of Alpha Phi, I'm proud of our philanthropic focus on women's heart health. I want to do my part to ensure more women -- and men -- live longer, healthier lives and my goal is to raise at least $500. I invite you to help me reach this goal with your own donation. Thank you for being a life saver!
