FRIDAY, April 27, 2018 (American Heart Association) -- When Scott Vande Zande had a serious stroke 15 years ago, his beloved golden retriever Hollie was key to his recovery.
"I had to learn to speak again, but there were times I couldn't talk," said the Seattle engineer. "I'd come home, and I was so depressed. Then, I'd see Hollie, and it took a lot of the grief away. She was just a godsend."
WEDNESDAY, April 4, 2018 (American Heart Association) -- Jerry McCann, Ray Rivera and Taunya Stewart are living proof that there's no good excuse to avoid physical activity, especially during Move More Month in April.
