After taking classes offered by the American Heart Association Maryland, the Gwynn Oak resident has learned to cook with herbs, garlic and other fresh ingredients, which has helped her reduce her intake of calories, sodium and other things...

Heavy wet snow, like the kind that is on the ground now in the Baltimore region , can be a major threat to a person's heart, according to local and national health officials. The American Heart Association says most people will not have any ill effects from exertion, but shoveling and even just walking can increase risk in others. To make the situation safer, the association reminds people they should take frequent breaks, don't eat a heavy meal before or soon after shoveling and use a small shover so the loads are lighter.

For Anne Efron, this Valentine's Day is about more than boxes of chocolate and long-stemmed roses. This year, the holiday is truly a celebration of the heart. The one that's beating in her chest. In late January of last year, Efron, a project administrator with the Center for AIDS Research at the Johns Hopkins University, was at home in Ruxton, planning dinner with her husband, David, the chief surgeon with Hopkins Hospital's division of acute care surgery. They planned to grill but discovered they were out of propane, so David went to the store, leaving home for about 15 minutes.

Perry Hall's varsity and JV girls lacrosse teams will wear red this Friday as they raise funds for the American Heart Association and honor Breanna Sudano, a Gators field hockey player who collapsed during a JV game in September. Sudano's life was saved through CPR at the field, then an operation at Maryland Children's Hospital by Dr. Sunjay Kaushal after she was diagnosed with anomalous coronary artery disease -- a condition she was born with but didn't know she had. From a news release sent out Wednesday: On Friday, starting at 5 p.m., the JV and varsity lacrosse teams at Perry Hall will honor Breanna with a "Red Out" game where they will all wear red in her honor. The girls play a fundraiser game every year.

It's only natural that J. Scott Wilfong, president and CEO of SunTrust Bank for the Greater Washington/Maryland area, would want to give back to the American Heart Association. After all, heart disease runs in his family. His wife, Susan, suffers from dilated cardiomyopathy, a condition in which the heart weakens and becomes enlarged. Her brother died at the age of 13 and her father at the age of 61 from the same condition. Their daughter, Sarah, 29, has a defibrillator and his sister-in-law has had a heart transplant.

It was 1985, and Gordon Tomaselli had graduated from the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and completed his residency at the University of California at San Francisco. He was at a Boston hospital, interviewing for a possible fellowship, when he got the phone call: His mother had gone into cardiac arrest. Within three weeks, Patricia Tomaselli would have a new heart, and her son would have a new career path. Before that moment, Tomaselli said, he had not been entirely set on a career as a cardiologist.
