On Tuesday, December 4 during its annual Season of Giving charitable campaign, AEG is dedicating its holiday efforts to the American Heart Association's (AHA) Go Red For Women, a passionate, emotional, and social initiative designed to empower women to take charge of their heart health.
Izzy Goodman: In early 2007, Craig Goodman and his wife, Julianna, received the most exciting news that they are expecting their firstborn child. But the excitement soon turned to heartache when they learned that their baby had a life-threatening heart defect and would need surgery when she was born. Isabeau "Izzy" Hope Goodman was born with half a heart on Dec. 17 and, a few days later, underwent her first open-heart surgery. Her gift on Christmas morning was a bright new scar on her chest. She went under the knife two more times in the next two years. Today, Izzy is a vibrant 4-year-old (turning 5 this December) who enjoys playing princess tea parties and loves playing with her baby brother.
