Natalie Baro’s Story
A survivor herself, Natalie unfortunately lost her spouse, mother and other family and friends to this terrible heart disease. She then realized that she wanted to make a difference in the community and help in creating awareness and raising funds for the American Heart Association. She does not want others to have to go through the terrible moments that she went through by not knowing how to notice potential and dangerous heart attack symptoms. Not knowing how to perform CPR, she wants to make others learn the basics on CPR and how to help save a life. How to use a defibrillator and making sure people know where to go when they need information on heart disease is also part of her plan.
