It’s a nightmare scenario. By 2035, an estimated 131 million Americans will have a form of cardiovascular disease (CVD), such as heart disease and stroke. That will be nearly HALF of the U.S. population and CVD costs are projected to soar to over $1 trillion annually!

Those sobering numbers are from the latest projections released by the American Heart Association. And it's why Congress needs to hear from all of us about the importance of enhanced funding for National Institutes of Health (NIH) funded heart and stroke research.

Therefore, film a video letting your representatives know that YOU are the heart of your state and that they need to increase funding for NIH today!

Record a video and post it on your lawmakers' twitter page
