Throughout the year, our blog will feature AHA volunteer stories of survival and hope. We know there are thousands of stories like these - thats why we want to say “Thanks” to all of you for giving your time and sharing your lives with us. You can’t spell CURE without U! Thank you for all you do to build healthier lives free of cardiovascular disease and stroke. YOU’RE THE CURE!

Watch the State of the Union with the AHA

Tonight, the President will address Congress and the American people with his State of the Union address- and we want to invite you to watch along with the AHA and join us for a real-time, online chat!

While we know it is likely that the President will focus on the nation's struggling economy, the American Heart Association will also be listening closely for mentions of the issues facing our nation's health- many of which you have been actively advocating for on behalf of heart disease and stroke patients and those at risk. So tune-in and log-on! Participating is easy!

1) Become a fan of the AHA's You're the Cure network on Facebook (if you aren't already!)
2) At 9:00 pm EST, visit the You're the Cure fan page and tune into the speech on TV.
3) Join in the conversation as the AHA posts throughout the speech. You could even win some prizes for taking part!

The State of the Union is a chance for the President to review the accomplishments of the past year and to set the stage for the year to come- so as informed health advocates, it is important that we all tune-in. And by being part of the AHA's online chat, you can not only watch the speech, but be part of the discussion.

See you on the You're the Cure Facebook fan page tonight!
