“Rock From the Heart for Aortic Health” Event Announced for February 7 & 8

By Adam Pick on October 12, 2019

Woo-Whoo!  I’m excited to share that Amy and Pete Johnson are putting on the 2nd “Rock From the Heart for Aortic Health” event next February 7-8 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

During this special two-day event, you are invited to meet other patients and attend the Aortic Health Symposium, a Recognition Dinner and a Night Ranger Concert.  To learn more, click here.

 

 

If you didn’t know, Night Ranger’s drummer, Kelly Keagy, needed aortic valve replacement surgery due to a bicuspid aortic valve, a common birth defect that impacts 1%-2% of the population.

 
 

Great Event!  Great Job Amy & Pete!

Being a HUUUUUUUUUUUGE fan of all types of music, I can’t think of a better way to raise awareness to aortic valve disease.

Great job to Amy and Pete for coming up with this wonderful idea and then rallying the support to make it happen. Fantastic!!!

Pete’s Journey From Patient to Advocate

As you may know, Pete had open heart surgery in 2017 due to severe aortic stenosis and an aortic aneurysm.

Pete and Amy then saw an opportunity to help others get educated and empowered specific to the symptoms and the risks of heart disease.

As Amy posted, “Pete and  I decided that once he recovered, we would find a way to help others by raising awareness of this silent killer.  When Pete’s condition was discovered, he had no symptoms.  He felt fine.  Had his doctor not heard that murmur and sent him for the echo, I’d be telling a very different story.  Now it is our turn to give back.”
