Because Hope is Where the Heart is!

 

COVID-19 UPDATE

Here at Greater Cincinnati African American Heart Association, GCAAHA.
It is always our first concern to make safety, good health and well-being for all  a top priority.
Due to all the uncertainties, and concerns with COVID-19. We feel it is in the best interest of the community we serve to cancel all upcoming public events for the remaining year of 2020.
As an alternative, we are working on new ways of interacting via social media.
Those who purchased advance tickets for the Heart of Gold Gala will receive full refund with the exception of processing fees.
We look forward to connecting with you soon!!
Thank you for your continued support.
Be safe, and stay well!!

TESTIMONIALS

In June of 2014, while on vacation in Chicago I was rushed to the hospital at the age of 58. I was diagnosed with congestive heart failure. Up until then, I had no signs of heart issues. Therefore, I was in denial the first year of my diagnosis. As time went on, the condition worsened. By the summer of 2017, I had to have a "Heart Transplant."
I give all praises to God! I am so grateful to the donor, and their family. In addition, to the awesome doctors, and nurses that cared for me. It is so important to listen to your body and the people that know and love you. Get regular checkups of your heart and vitals. Know your numbers and warning signs. In addition, if you doubt a diagnosis, get a second or third opinion. You could possible do yourself more harm by being in denial.
My experience, has truly been life changing! I'm so grateful that God spared my life. Now, I live each day FOR HIS GLORY, and to pay it forward by serving others as the Founder and President of Greater Cincinnati African American Heart Association.
