Entire Month of September is Cholesterol Awareness Month
September 04, 2017
My father's birthday was September 1. And how fitting to kickoff the month of FH Awareness by walking 5 miles to honor his birthday. When I was 14, he died while running errands at just the age of 60. He clearly had FH. I was diagnosed at 48 and I aim to get the word out about this common, treatable disorder.
I'll be walking the 5 miles from my house, to A1A and back - a week from today. Come join me. I'm leaving at 5pm.
The money I raise will go to the FH Foundation. The most impressive organization that is dedicated to educating the world about this common genetic disorder.
