THE STORY:

 

On October 5th 2011 I had open heart surgery to replace a defective  valve and repair  an aortic aneurysm. I was diagnosed in 2008 only after insisting on a stress test. I had been competing in ultra distance bike races, including the Race Across America, completely unaware that I had a congenital heart defect.  I could have been one of those people you read about who appear to be in perfect health and then they're gone. I was very lucky. I am grateful to be alive and to be able to run and train for the NYC Marathon. 

I am raising money for the American Heart Association to educate people on the need for screening, the importance of patient involvement with their doctor and improving diagnostic capabilities. 

 

Team Heartosaurus for the American Heart Association

The mission of the American Heart Association is to build healthier lives, free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. That single purpose drives all we do. The need for our work is beyond question.

Our Team is full of people with inspiring, bittersweet stories. We and our families are excited to be raising money for the American Heart Association.

Team Heartosaurus is a global network of individuals collectively driven to increase awareness of the many aspects of heart disease, and who embody a "live life to it's fullest" attitude. We are fighters, and pillars of strength. We are always looking for patients, doctors, family members and others who share this common bond, to join the team.

Team members compete in runs. triathlons, cycling, and marathons. Others simply sport the iconic jerseys as a sign of their belonging. You don't have to be an athlete to be on the team, you just need to be a Heartosaurus.

Heartosaurus: noun [heart-o-sau-rus] 1. An inspiring online reference for open heart surgery patients. 2. A heart patient with an inextinguishable desire not merely to survive, but to live life to its fullest. 3. A doctor, caregiver, or anyone who makes a profound difference to the cause.
