About Us

Treasure your heart.  Both physically and spiritually. If you have a heart murmur, shortness of breath, or any other heart related symptom, see a cardiologist. Keep your heart spiritually strong as well, live everyday with Christlike love. My husband Ty is the greatest example of this.  

On June 19, 2015, my heart shattered. Ty and I were running the Ragnar Wasatch Back. As our van cheered Ty along his first leg, he was doing great. After checking in with him and handing him what would become his last drink of water, we left and went to get our next runner ready at the exchange.  

While waiting for Ty, we heard rumors that a runner collapsed near the end of his leg. Time said he should have finished by now, but we still had not seen him. I figured he must have stopped to help the runner who collapsed. He would never run past a person in need of help. 

Suddenly, I felt like I should go find him. As I walked around the corner, I saw an ambulance and a crowd of people. I scanned the heads of the crowd looking for my 6'3" husband, but I could not see him. My eyes looked down at the ground and I saw HIS shoes. He was the one who had collapsed.  

Long story short, the love of my life did not survive that day. He had collapsed .2 miles before the finish line due to an enlarged heart. His heart was enlarged because he was born with a bicuspid aortic valve. This was never diagnosed.  It can be hereditary and the only way to find it is through an echocardiogram.  Ty's 46 years on earth were much too short, but he loved more in that time than most do in a lifetime.  That is the irony of his passing... a heart grown too big. 

Ty's physical heart is broken, but I know he continues to love big.  My wish is to continue his legacy through Treasure Your Heart.
