Vivian Salazar, secretary to Dr. Michael Kaiser in the Spine Center, has joined the Columbia Neurosurgery Team and will be walking with us this May in the American Heart Association’s 2011 Start! Wall Street Run & Heart Walk.
Vivian will be walking for her mother. “She has suffered from so many strokes in her life,” says Vivian. “It has robbed her from enjoying her golden years, and us from having her participate in her family’s life. She’s been in a nursing home for 10 years now.”
“Based on my family history,” Vivian say, ” I’m hoping this will kick start a healthier chapter in my life.”
Vivian walks a lot but says she has never participated in an event like this. ” I hope it is my first of many to come! I love the cause and hope we continue to support it.”
You can also join our team or become a Sponsor. The Heart Walk will be held May 17, 2011 in New York City’s Financial district. Registration and activities begin at 6:45 pm at the World Financial Center.
