Both women received their free heart health screenings and shared how heart disease has impacted their family. Vanessa is no stranger to heart disease, having lost both grandmothers to the illness. Vanessa’s parents made a conscious effort to change their heart health history, and Vanessa has carried on this tradition with Jillian and all her children by cooking healthy foods, staying active, and maintaining yearly check-ups.
