Country Casuals Discount Shoe Store, 3910 Us Highway 264 E, Greenville, NC 27834
In January of 2013, Heather suffered sudden cardiac death and anoxic brain damage due to lack of oxygen during the cardiac arrest. She had a pacemaker/defibrillator implanted and was found to have a genetic heart defect which causes the walls of her heart to thicken, called Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy (HCM) .She was hospitalized for 7 months until being able to go home to her family. With the brain damage she has to relearn to do everything from swallowing, walking, using her left side, using her muscles together to do everyday tasks. She is not able to eat and has a g-tube in her stomach for feeding. She also can’t talk yet and goes to therapy each week. She takes 25 medicines daily. She continues to have complications such as seizures, twists in her intestines and fainting. She is a determined 17 year old young lady with a great attitude and beautiful smile. She loves motorcycles and can’t wait to see and hear all the bikes.

There will also be a 50/50 raffle as well as a $10.00 Raffle for $100 Gift Card Redeemable at Longhorn Steakhouse, Red Lobster, and Olive Garden.

Prostate cancer is the second most common cause of cancer death for men in the United States. 2.5 million American men are currently living with prostate cancer, yet according to SU2C President & CEO Sung Poblete, PhD, RN, “Men are 40 percent less likely than women to have visited a healthcare provider in the past year… talking to one’s doctor about prostate cancer is critically important.”

Help us spread the message and to empower men to speak with their doctors about developing a plan for prostate cancer health. As Rashida Jones states, “We have to protect the men we cherish, so please talk to your fathers, your grandfathers, husbands, brothers and sons and make sure they speak to their doctors about this disease and how to reduce their risk.”
