This week we hear about the necessity to listen to our body when it screams at us. Amy Bettesworth is the American Heart Association's Director of the Heart & Stroke Walk in Tacoma. Her husband Tom is a heart attack survivor, so they both have perspectives worth hearing. Tom ignored the symptoms of his heart attack and Amy, as a dutiful wife, went along with it, telling him "if you still feel this bad in the morning, let's go to urgent care." Well, luckily he survived until the morning. He shares his compelling story and they both tell us the need for people to learn more about their heart health.
The American Heart Association is hosting Heart & Stroke Walks in Puget Sound; on October 5th in Tacoma and October 12th in Seattle. You can start your own team, join or support an existing team, or donate online at www.heart.org/pugetsound
