BENEFITING: JOHN RITTER FOUNDATION FOR AORTIC HEALTH
ORGANIZER: JOHN RITTER FOUNDATION FOR AORTIC HEALTH
EVENT DATE: Nov 03, 2013
I am a Vascular Surgeon with a special interest in Aortic Disease. Everyday I meet inspiring and unique individuals who transform the shock of being diagnosed with Aortic Dissection and Aneurysm into empowerment and motivation to change the world and live life to the fullest. I love my patients -- and they regularly teach me the importance of perseverence and hope.
Living with aortic disease is a life long pursuit -- a marathon not a sprint -- so I am dedicating this run to my patients, their families and my collegues.
