As a cardiac patient this fundraiser hits home! For those who don’t know I had to undergo open heart surgery for a quadruple bypass November 1st of last year due to genetics.  I was in the OR for over nine hours - I passed seventeen clots, had a blood transfusion, and three bags of platelets. I was very fortunate for my medical background to know something was wrong and went to the ER. I’m also fortunate to be an Occupational Therapist so I was able to rehabilitate myself, and I was even more fortunate to have friends and family helping me recover. While I’m thankful I had works class surgeons open heart is a very invasive surgery that requires months of recovery. By raising money for research we can potentially develop less invasive procedures or increase longevity of arterial grafts as they traditionally last  approximately twenty to thirty years. So approaching my thirty fifth birthday you can see why I strongly support advanced research. I’m starting with a goal of only $250 and ask for any help reaching my fundraising goal.

All proceeds raised willl be for Emory Heart and Vascular Center located in Georgia. 

This particular race will be my first ever century ride (100mi) It features not only 100mi of turns and twist, but also consist of 5500+ feet of elevation scaling over the “three sisters” with crowds cheering before crossing the finish. My personal to push myself is to complete the race in its entirety within 6hrs!
