I wanted to share with you an article about me that was published by the American Heart Association and AARP about my medical condition called Arterial Fibrillation (AFib). This is a condition where the top of the heart flutters and no longer delivers a consistent heartbeat; each beat now is irregular from the last and this causes a whole host of problems. AFib has fundamentally changed the direction of my life and as such I needed to resign my position as the Communications Chairman for the Supply Corps Foundation. I have been associated with the Foundation since 2007 and was a national board member for the past 6 years. This resignation leaves me with great sorrow but it is something that needed to be done so I can concentrate upon my health. I agreed to be interviewed for the article in hopes that my experience will help others. Our health is one of the most important conditions of our lives and I need time now to concentrate on my wife and my health. I hope you enjoy the article which can be found on the AARP website. I am also continuing to post and blog regularly on: https://myafibexperience.org/myafib.
Also, here is a flyer highlighting the cruise and here is a link to provide additional information: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2GWzGK6IQEE&feature=youtu.be.
