The following message is from Nancy Brown, CEO of the American Heart Association...
As Thanksgiving Day approaches, my thoughts turn to all of the families together today — because of the generosity of people like you.
Behind every person saved by CPR, every child who picks up a jump rope and starts a lifelong habit of engaging in physical activity, every patient who survives and thrives after a stroke… there is someone like you.
You make it possible for millions of Americans to live longer, healthier lives free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. I am grateful beyond words for your support. And when I think about what you helped accomplish this year, I'm astounded. See what your support has made possible.
I'm already looking forward to our next year of healthy hearts.
I hope you and your family have a joyous and Happy Thanksgiving.
Warmest holiday wishes, Nancy
P.S. So many people have a stake in your support. I hope you can find it in your heart to give today.
Thanks to everyone who has learned CPR and who have saved someone's life. Thank you AHA.
