It’s been pretty hectic with my travel marathon — 3 trips within a week, and I’m packing to leave again tomorrow.
Being on the road gave me time to reflect on the recent losses of Tony Snow and Dr. Michael DeBakey, as well as the losses a few weeks earlier of Tim Russert and George Carlin. Some were young, some were not, but all were tragic losses. Each left an indelible mark on us and our world. They left a legacy.
Even while Tony Snow was struggling with colon cancer, he lived with such grace, authenticity, and love for those around him and his world that even in adversity he made a difference. As we struggle with our own health challenges, including atrial fibrillation, may we also make a difference for those around us.
It was great to take time to reflect. When my days on this earth are through, I want to have helped others live longer, healthier, and happier lives by helping to:
- improve the quality of life for afib patients and their families
- bridge the chasm between patients and their doctors, and
- wipe out strokes caused by afib
That’s what I want my legacy to be and what StopAfib.org is all about. Please pass the word to those who are struggling with atrial fibrillation, and their families.
What will your legacy be?
