Kerry & Zach's Story

In 2010, Kerry’s husband Sam collapsed at home. His speech was slurred and she feared he was having a stroke. After an ambulance took him to the hospital and tests were performed her fear was realized. At the age of 38 Sam had suffered a stroke. A short time later he died. Kerry had to break the news to their 4-year-old son Zach who responded with courage hugging his mom and telling them would get through it together.

The following year, Kerry headed up a Heart Walk team at her company in honor of Sam. Soon Zach joined the effort with bake-sale fundraisers at his school, “to make sure other kids don’t have to grow up without a dad.”

The American Heart Association is the largest voluntary health organization working to prevent, treat and defeat heart disease, stroke and other cardiovascular diseases. These diseases, the Nation's No.1 and No.4 killers, claim more than 813,804 American lives a year. Thanks to all our walkers, donors and volunteers who have accepted the challenge to help fight heart disease and stroke. We cannot achieve our mission without each one of you!
