2017 Heart Ball Honoree, Gene Lovin’
He’s not only dressed as a Super Hero, this year’s Heart Ball honoree, Gene “Lovin’” Trammel, is a real life hero to many.
This photo was taken seconds before Gene collapsed from sudden cardiac arrest at a special event for which he was serving as the emcee. Thanks to the quick response of bystander CPR, Gene lived to tell his story and to advocate for legislature for CPR training and AED placement. You will meet Gene and his family and hear his incredible story at this year’s Heart Ball. Your Open Your Heart donation will help continue the work of the American Heart Association to educate more people on how to administer hands only CPR and be ready to become a Superhero, just like Gene.
Imagine a world without heart disease or stroke. Many say this is unattainable, considering heart disease kills more Americans than the next four leading causes of death combined. But this vision — for a world free of heart disease and stroke — drives the lifesaving mission of the American Heart Association. Open Your Heart gives donors the opportunity to make a direct impact on the AHA’s mission by making a personal gift.
Your generosity enables the American Heart Association to fund groundbreaking research, develop guidelines to improve patient care and help people lower their risk factors for heart disease and stroke. As long as heart disease continues to be the nation’s No. 1 cause of death, the importance of our work will only grow. Please consider making a gift to Open Your Heart.
Together, we can change lives and saves lives!
