Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I can’t believe the program is ending. What a ride it has been. Although in the scheme of things, we are just beginning this new phase of our lives. I have learned so much more than just how to eat healthy and exercise. I learned about motivation, perseverance, self-love, teamwork – the list could go on and on. The BetterU program has been so life-changing that I cannot even put it into words. It has helped me remember that I am going to be ok. I can do this “lifestyle change” everyone talks about when they want to become healthier. Not only can I do it, but I can rock it.
The program may be ending, but my journey continues. Much love to everyone who supported me – sponsors, AHA staff, and most of all friends and family. When I was selected for this program my cousin said, “You go girl! Although I’m not sure how it’s possible for there to be a better YOU!” To her I say – if you thought I was awesome then, just wait til you see me now…
Our mission is to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives. For nearly 100 years, we’ve been fighting heart disease and stroke, striving to save and improve lives. Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. We want to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
