Tina Larrick wasn't feeling well. She thought she might be getting the flu. But it was her daughter's birthday - a time to celebrate - so she tried to ignore her symptoms. Heading to bed that night, she expected she would sleep well. What she wasn't expecting was a heart attack. At the age of 38, Larrick was shocked to learn she had heart disease. "My father had had open-heart surgery. His father died from a heart attack when he was 52, but I thought my brothers would be at risk for similar problems - not me," the Boonsboro resident said.

chambersburg@herald-mail.com CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. -Two-year-old Zackary Reynolds clapped enthusiastically after his mother spoke Thursday at the kickoff for the Franklin/Fulton Heart Walk, perhaps too young to realize how money raised for heart research made his life possible. "It's because of associations like this that I was able to have two beautiful sons," said Jamie Reynolds, the Red Cap spokeswoman for the Sept. 25 American Heart Association Heart Walk in Greencastle, Pa. Red caps worn by participants in the 4-mile walk signify they are survivors or relatives of those who have had heart disease or strokes.
