Cardiovascular disease or coronary
heart disease is America’s leading cause of death. Not
only can it kill you, having heart disease can also affect
your quality of life. Studies continue to show us you can decrease
your risks for most kinds of heart disease.
I became a nurse because of my strong family history of heart
disease. My father, whom I adored, was one of many family members
to have his life affected by heart disease, as well as die
at a young age.
