A Message from JRF Chairman
and Founder, Amy Yasbeck

Dear Friends, more than 20 years ago, in John’s honor, I established The John Ritter Foundation for Aortic Health. Our goal: to stop unnecessary suffering caused by the woeful lack of awareness of thoracic aortic dissection. Our community has diligently worked to shine a much-needed light on this often-misdiagnosed life-threatening emergency through education, research and advocacy. Recently, our decades-long mission to keep families safe caught the attention of GMA3’s Dr. Jen Ashton. I’m so pleased that I had the opportunity to speak with her and share our vitally important message. Check out our GMA interview below.
