According to the American Heart Association, ” Heart Disease accounts for 1 in 7 deaths in the US”. Unfortunately, on February 19th, 2018, we suddenly lost my father to a heart attack. You never think anything bad can happen to you or your family until it does. With it having such a high mortality rate I get to be the voice my father no longer has. I want to bring awareness to others about the seriousness and infinite effects heart disease can cause. My father, Sherman, was a hard working painter who loved his family, job and dog poncho. I’m in the process of finishing up the new website “The Sherman Project” were you will be able to purchase a bracelet to help his family and by wearing the bracelet you spread awareness with the world. The bracelets are simple but hold so much meaning, a paint brush for what he did, you could find him 7 days a week working doing what he loved, painting. A red ribbon is for heart disease and all the the lost loved ones and survivors. Lastly, blue beads represents him, it is reserved, quiet and sincere, it brings peace of mind knowing he gets to paint the sky blue and forever be in our hearts. I can’t wait to share this with the world!
