BENEFITING: JOHN RITTER FOUNDATION FOR AORTIC HEALTH
ORGANIZER: JOHN RITTER FOUNDATION FOR AORTIC HEALTH
EVENT: 2015 LA Marathon
EVENT DATE: Mar 15, 2015
I am delighted to run in the LA Marathon this year to support and raise money for the John Ritter Foundation. I share the vision and aims of the John Ritter Foundation in my lifelong desire to raise awareness of aortic disease.
As someone who has dedicated the last decade of his career to the care of patients with various aortic pathologies, and the investigation of novel therapeutics in reducing morbidity and mortality of surgical patients, I am very excited to partner with JRF in funding research and public education on this vital topic.
Aortic disease remains a leading killer: it is the sixth leading cause of death for men over 60, and the thirteenth cause of death for both genders. Let's all pitch in to make a difference!
