MORE: 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.
American Heart Association’s Go Red For Women: In 2004, the American Heart Association (AHA) faced a challenge. Cardiovascular disease claimed the lives of nearly 500,000 American women each year, yet women were not paying attention. In fact, many even dismissed it as an “older man’s disease.” To dispel they myths and raise awareness of heart disease as the number one killer of women, the AHA created Go Red For Women.
AEG’s Season of Giving is an initiative designed to raise funds and generate awareness in support of non-profit organizations working on issues of hunger, homelessness and healthcare. During the month of December, a different non-profit organization will be highlighted during a brief program at the Los Angeles Kings Holiday Ice at L.A. LIVE.
