MAA Volunteers Share their Stories on National Stage

Our Youth Market team has worked hard and exceeded the money raised in last year’s breakout growth year. This week, Nancy Brown’s blog featured a student from Durham, NC
who raised more than $60K for Jump Rope for Heart this year. I have a couple of national media hits to share that tell the stories of two Mid-Atlantic survivor volunteers. For Mother’s Day, WomensDay.com featured mom-and-daughter and local Raleigh, NC volunteers, Kay LaVelle, 66, and Jill Morin, 43. Both women had undiagnosed cardiomyopathy, a disease of the heart
muscle that can lead to congestive heart failure or cardiac arrest. And what they didn’t know almost killed them.

Watch her interview here.
