I am participating in an Ambassador program on behalf of Influence Central and hosted by by the makers of Bayer® Aspirin. I have received compensation for my participation. All opinions expressed are my own.
Did you know that every 42 seconds in the U.S. someone has a heart attack. Growing up my Grandmother had a heart condition so I was well aware of heart health all through my life. She taught me early on how to help save a life in case of heart attack and now Bayer Aspirin has started a brand new campaign to inform everyone about the risks of a heart attack. My Grandmother’s heart despite all the odds allowed her to see her great grandchildren born. Knowing that I want a healthy heart I have made an effort to become more active as a family. Making healthy choices even with my children will allow our family to lives longer and happier lives.
Bayer Aspirin wants to inspire us all to become HeroSmiths and the premise is simple, chewing aspirin during a suspected heart attack could help save a life. The problem is, who ever has aspirin around? Bayer wants to turn everyone with a common last name into a potential hero.
Here’s how it works, aspirin keeps blood from clotting so when taken during a suspected heart attack you can increase your chance of survival. Remember if you or someone you know is having a suspected heart attack you should call 911 immediately and chew or crush and swallow aspirin as directed by a doctor.
With so many people unaware of the life saving benefits of Bayer Aspirin I am thrilled to join in to help spread awareness. I have a small container attached to my keychain so I can help save a life if anyone should ever need it. I spend a lot of time at the gym and out and you never know when someone might need help. It’s also a reminder of my Grandmother and all the ways she’s inspired me to help others. I’d like to encourage you all to join in and take the pledge with me!
You can learn more on the Hero Smith website and take the pledge to carry aspirin.
Do you carry aspirin, is this something you could pledge to do?
In the event of a suspected heart attack, immediately call 9-1-1 and chew or crush and swallow aspirin as directed by a doctor.
