Survivor Interview – Shaylee Ward
Cardiovascular disease is defined as any medical condition that affects the functioning of the heart and its ability to pump blood to the rest of the body. Atherosclerosis, high blood pressure (hypertension), and cardiac arrhythmias are all included as types of heart disease. This video is an interview with Shaylee , a girl who lost her father to heart disease while she was in the second grade. Now, she spends time fundraising for the American Heart Association to help researchers find out more about the causes and possible treatments for these dangerous heart conditions.
