I serve on the Board of Directors of the Myocarditis Foundation because I want to put an end to the suffering this disease wreaks on patients and families. I am passionate, driven, and fully committed both programmatically and financially to try to make a difference. This disease caused so much suffering in my family and in every family that contacts us from all over the world. I pray that the work we do will someday result in greater awareness of the disease, faster diagnostics and better treatments leading to more lives saved and decreased suffering.
