The devastating fact in all this is…
Every one of those cases could have been prevented.
The problem is most people think that a heart attack won’t happen to them. It is a problem that happens to other folks. The elderly, people who are overweight, or people who don’t exercise and look after themselves.
The truth is a heart attack can happen to any adult. It can even happen to people who “feel fine.” The key to avoiding heart disease and heart attacks is preventing the ‘too late’ signs. Chest pain, breathlessness, and palpitations.
Curbing these before they happen is the holy grail of preventative cardiology.
It is my goal is to help people prevent heart attacks and the diseases that cause them. Educating and supporting people to understand the importance of heart health. Challenging them to live heart-smart so they can Scale more Summits, Run more Races, and Live for more moments that make their hearts beat.
