The Importance of Your Heart
The heart is a leading factor in the cause of American deaths, according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Our nation’s citizens are dying from heart disease, which is the number one killer, and Cerebrovascular diseases (including strokes), which are number four.
The American Heart Association promotes efforts to save lives from heart problems. Donations and long-term gifts support education, research, efforts to advocate for better health and reach out to populations at the greatest risk, as well as improved patient care.
