Heart disease is the leading cause of death in America. Cardiovascular Disease (CVD) takes the lives of more than 2,150 Americans each day, an average of 1 death every 40 seconds.
One of those Americans was David Baranski, loving father of Sporcle Staffer Leanne Vassallo. David, or Mr B as he was known by his friends, worked as a Regulatory Specialist for Terumo Cardiovascular in Ann Arbor, Michigan. He spent his time and energy trying to help his fellow man combat this ongoing and terrible problem.
In honor of his memory, Sporcle is making a donation to Gift of Life Michigan. Headquartered in Ann Arbor, Gift of Life Michigan is the state’s only federally designated organ and tissue recovery program. Any advertising revenue generated by playing the Sporcle quiz Anatomy of the Heart in 2013 will be donated to this worthy organization.
