BENEFITING: FAMILIAL HYPERCHOLESTEROLEMIA FOUNDATION

ORGANIZER: Mackenzie

EVENT: Race for FH

EVENT DATE: Sep 01, 2017

THE STORY:

Hi Everyone! I signed up to do my first 5K (Virtual) to help raise awereness and money for Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) for the FH Foundation.  Many of you know that I was diagnosed with this condition 3 years ago.  I should of been diagnosed and treated years earlier but wasn't.  Due to this, I developed Accelerated Atherosclerosis and was told that I was at a very high risk for a coronary event or procedure in the next 3-5 years.  Thankfully there were new medical advancements in pharmaceuticals and I am doing well. Please consider donating to this cause to continue with research, development and education. You know if I am going to run, this cause is very important to me and my family. Thank you!


Familial Hypercholesterolemia (FH) is an inherited form of high cholesterol, which left untreated can lead to premature heart disease and death.  FH affects approximately 1 in 250 people - 30 million people worldwide - of all ethnicities and ages, including children.  In the US alone, FH causes some 12,000 heart attacks per year, often in men and women under the age of 45.  With early diagnosis and appropriate treatment, people born with FH can dramatically reduce their risk and live longer and healthier lives.  


Why your help is important: More than 90% of people with FH do not know they have it.  That means entire families are at risk.  The FH Foundation improves the undrstanding, diagnosis, and treatment of FH.  Please help us raise awareness and fund the FH Foundation's research, education, and advocacy efforts to win the race for FH.  Spread the word!  Raise awareness!  Honor a loved one! Celebrate a milestone!  Every dollar makes a difference.
