My name is Hayley. I am a 35 year old stay at home mom to six wonderful kids ages 2-16. I am overweight. I am at risk for heart disease because of it. I have a very strong history of heart disease. My own father died at the age of 41 of a stroke. He’d had a heart attack the year prior to his deadly stroke. I was just 12 years old. I am terrified that this will happen to me and I will leave my own children way too soon without a parent. I know that heart disease is preventable! I am determined to live a healthier lifestyle and add years to my life. I am here to give and receive encouragement from others who are trying to prevent heart disease and stroke in their lives, as well as the lives of their family members.
