Mexico's "Swim for Your Heart" 2014 Event
I swam in memory of my brother Robbie who died at the age of 34 from a heart attack. He was unaware that he had heart disease. Also, I swam in memory of Ivar Sisniega's brother who died two weeks ago in his mid-thirties from a heart attack. Sadly, Ivar had another brother who died one year ago to the day from the same problem.
We need to continue to support heart programs throughout the world and to encourage people to swim as a means to stay heart healthy, and to see their health care provider to assess their blood pressures and cholesterol blood screening. Thank you.
