Most people would agree that if a month could choose a representative color, February would be red. The second month of the year is often thought of as the month of love, with Valentine’s Day being celebrated! February is also host to another reason to promote red because it is considered American Heart Month. Today, the first Friday of the month, people wear red to raise awareness for women’s heart health.
Two people remarkably close to our hearts at Martin & Martin battle with heart complications. Denise Martin’s granddaughter, Wynonna, who recently turned two years old, was born with Congenital Heart Disease. She endured open heart surgery in her first month of life and is now an incredibly happy and energetic joy in life. She is our “Heart Warrior”, and we are amazed at the role modern medicine played in her healing.
Our own Rhonda Kowalski is also a heart fighter. Born with Supraventricular Tachycardia (SVT), Rhonda developed difficulty during her pregnancy with her son Sawyer in 2010. Think of SVT as an extra electrical wire that gets stuck and goes in a circle over and over. After surgeries to help fix the condition, Rhonda was also diagnosed with Atrial fibrillation, or an irregular heartbeat.
Heart issues are something that can be present at birth or arise later in life, that is why it is important to obtain life insurance at a young age and keep it in force. When health conditions present at an older age, it can be difficult to purchase life insurance at decent premiums. We know firsthand how delicate life is and how quickly circumstances can change. Consider having a talk with us to find out how we can help to protect you and your family from unforeseen events.
