Robin Presson was born with heart disease, but has lived well past doctors expectations. She says because she outlasted the odds, its her responsibility to spread the message. Robyns battle has been a long one marked by open heart surgery and daily uncertainty. Presson says “They told my parents I would not survive, or make it to my first birthday.” Shes now 29, but her fight is far from over. This year she found out she has stage three heart failure. Presson says “Its something that you do have to face every day when you wake up, because some days are better than others.” Robyn says events like Saturdays walk will help save the lives of those who fall victim to heart disease in the future. Presson says “Its really important to me to get the story out, of the survivors because I am one of the few with my type of heart problem that is actually still alive.” The Northeast Indiana American Heart Association hopes to raise $200,000 Saturday. Its their biggest goal yet. Mike Stetzel, the Director of Fort Wayne American Heart Association says “I think we will make the goal tomorrow.” Over 1,000 walkers are expected to hit the pavement. Robyn will be right there among them with her team of 25, called Robyns Warriors. Robyns life story made her a nominee for the American Heart Associations Lifestyle Change Award. The winner will be announced Saturday at the walk. FOX Fort Wayne’s Kennie Berg will be the M.C. at the walk.
