BENEFITING: FAMILIAL HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA FOUNDATION
Familial Hypercholesterolemia is a super long way of saying your high cholesterol is from an inherited genetic disorder. Cholesterol begins collecting while we're still cooking in utero, and untreated FH can cause early heart attacks. My grandfather went untreated and it led to his fatal heart attack at 30 years old.
Today, though, treating FH is completely possible - as soon as you know you have it. Unfortunately as many as 90% of people with FH have no idea. By raising awareness, the FH Foundation is educating people and saving lives. Catching FH early is the key to a great defense. So let's tackle FH like it's the Eagles offense!
