Are you living with heart disease?

Finding out you have heart disease changes your life...

After a heart event, you and your loved ones may feel overwhelmed and scared. You know a lifestyle change is necessary, but don't know where to start.

Or you may simply be interested in staying healthy and preventing heart disease.

Either way, this site can help by providing resources for heart healthy exercise, diet including featured recipes, and lifestyle choices.

You'll find recommended reading suggestions throughout as well as on ourrecommended reading page. There are news updates, and frequently asked questions and answers!

I hope you'll share your thoughts and ideas about the site. And if you're living with heart disease, share your story for the benefit of others.

I understand what it's like to have to change your thinking and your lifestyle... because I've been there. I had a 90% blockage in 2004, and an aortic valve replacement in 2011.


Presentation to Ski For Heart event

Here's a video of a presentation I gave to the Ski For Heart event at the Chateau Lake Louise in January 2013. I talk about my experience with heart disease, how awareness likely saved my life, and the important research that the Heart & Stroke Foundation supports.
