About American Heart Association

The six cardiologists who founded the American Heart Association in 1924 would be amazed. From humble beginnings, the AHA has grown into the nation’s oldest and largest voluntary organization dedicated to fighting heart disease and stroke. A shared focus on cardiovascular health unites more than 33 million volunteers and supporters.

Heart disease is the No. 1 killer worldwide, and stroke ranks second globally. Even when those conditions don’t result in death, they cause disability and diminish quality of life. AHA wants to see a world free of cardiovascular diseases and stroke. AHA has invested more than $4.1 billion in research, including funding the work of 14 Nobel Prize winners. The Mission – to be a relentless force for a world of longer, healthier lives.

 

Spotlight Story: Meet Max Page

Max Page is a child actor and an Orange County resident. He is known for his appearance as the “Darth Vader Kid” in the popular Volkswagen TV commercial and his role as Reed Hellstrom on The Young & the Restless. Max is also a heart disease survivor.

Max was born with a congenital heart defect and has undergone 13 surgeries for his condition. Cardiovascular disease can affect any person in a family, at any age and time.
