Nicole and Todd Kreisler
Todd and I met 15 years ago in an operating room. Todd is a cardiothoracic Physician Assistant and I was a CV operating room RN. We have seen many emergent cases and have been involved with treatment of aortic disease. We know, firsthand, the importance of early diagnosis and definitive treatment.(We have been married 13 years, by the way...).
Two years ago, I became part of this wonderful team of survivors. Todd qualified for the NYC Marathon and was looking for ways I could run. He found The John Ritter Foundation had a spot open, and I was very intrigued, to say the least! Jack Tripper on Three's Company, was a family favorite. My brother and I know every episode by heart. Todd and I have been known to watch this favorite comedy to inspire us before more than one race! I was more than proud to run with Team Ritter. After running the race last year, and both meeting all the wonderful people involved in the organization, the choice was easy to fill in as alternates. We will run again(me as an alumni!) to help raise funds to continue the research and educate people about the risks and signs of aortic disease.
So, here we are!! Ready to roll as marathoners and healthcare advocates. Todd and I are happy to be running to spread knowledge. We are ready to feel the pain of the 26.2 to contribute to increased awareness of aortic dissections and its risk factors. What could be better than doing something you love while helping others survive in honor of such a wonderful man? Go Team Ritter!!
