It’s Thanksgiving week here in the U.S., which is a time to reflect and give thanks. No matter what has happened in our lives, we have much for which to be thankful.
I have much for which I am thankful as well, including getting a second chance and a third chance at life. Both caused me to take up new missions — first, helping women know that heart disease is the #1 killer of women as well as men, and second, via StopAfib.org, helping those with atrial fibrillation in hopes of wiping out afib-related strokes.
As part of my journey spreading the word, I recently had the opportunity to walk in Oprah’s footsteps and as a result made new commitments to these two missions. Thanksgiving seemed an appropriate time to share that via an open note to Oprah in thanks for her inspiration.
We at StopAfib.org wish you time for reflecting on that for which you give thanks.
