I’m Cher 🙂
Here’s My Story ↓↓↓
In the last few years…
several close family members, suddenly and unexpectedly, passed away.
I lost my Mom, Step Dad, Dad, and Uncle within a very short period of time.
→Passed away, suddenly and unexpectedly, from complications of Cardiovascular Disease
→60 years old or younger at time of death
Working as a Cardiac/Stroke Registered Nurse…
opened my eyes to just how many patients had, you guessed it, Cardiovascular Disease.
The majority of patients I encountered had the following diseases:
Cardiovascular Disease, Diabetes, High Blood Pressure, High Cholesterol.
The sad part is, the patients being admitted with these diseases keep getting younger and younger.
A lot of diseases can be prevented and/or managed to prevent them from spiraling out of control.
Experiencing such intense loss…
in such a short amount of time does something to the soul.
I became depressed, unhealthy, and just sort of a shell of myself.
As time went on, I knew I had to make something good come out of this. I had to do something.
From there, it was like a light bulb turned on. Healthcare is doing it all wrong.
There is not enough emphasis on prevention and management of disease…specifically Cardiovascular Disease!
According to the World Health Organization (2014), Cardiovascular Disease is the number one cause of death in the entire world! Death by Cardiovascular Disease far surpasses every other disease in the world today.
Turning lemons into lemonade…
