THE STORY:

Hello Everyone!


My father passed away on August 17, 2013 due to complications from an Aortic Dissection. We knew very little about this condition until it happened. In fact, it seems many doctors don't know what to look for when a dissection happens. Luckily, my father had surgery and was able to survive for 2 1/2 months after the dissection.The John Ritter Foundation is dedicated to raising money to support the Education, Research and Genetic Studies related to Aortic Health.I have dedicated myself to raising money for this organization in honor of my Father, George Ealer. Please help me support this wonderful cause!I am honored to be selected to be part of the 2016 John Ritter Foundation Marathon Team. Any impact I can make to help others understand about Aortic health is my #1 priority!!!!  JOHN RITTER FOUNDATION FOR AORTIC HEALTH wrote -

The John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health (JRF) is proud to be an official charity of the TCS NYC Marathon to take place on Sunday, November 5, 2017. This is an amazing opportunity to increase awareness of thoracic aortic disease, as well as raise funds to support education and research. We are so honored to have been chosen.

Funds from the marathon will benefit the John Ritter Research Program in Aortic and Vascular Diseases (JRRP) at The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth) to support research to identify genetic risks for aortic dissections.

“The funds raised by Team Ritter will allow us to continue our genetic research to identify genes or altered DNA that increases an individual’s risk for an acute aortic dissection. By identifying who is at risk, we can prevent the premature deaths due to aortic dissections,” said Dianna Milewicz, M.D., Ph.D., director of UTHealth’s John Ritter Research Program. “It will also help us spread information to both physicians and the public about symptoms and genetic risk factors for aortic dissections, including the fact that this condition can run in families.” Milewicz is also professor and George H. W. Bush Chair in Cardiovascular Research in the Division of Medical Genetics at the UTHealth Medical School.

Individuals interested in joining Team Ritter to run the marathon, help us increase awareness of aortic disease, and fundraise are encouraged to submit an application here.
