“Eres mi corazón”

“You’re My Heart”

Real Stories * Real People

The color RED represents Strength, Joy, and Power.  Now, isn’t that what we all want for your heart?  To have strength, feel joy and function with power!  For adults 18 and older, a normal resting heart rate is between 60 and 100 beats per minute (bpm), depending on the person’s physical condition and age. For children ages 6 to 15, the normal resting heart rate is between 70 and 100 bpm(beat per minute).       ~Source:  American Heart Association

While meeting the needs in this and neighboring communities,  I experience many wonderful tributes because of our efforts to raise awareness about heart disease.  As I continue my husband’s legacy as co-founder of the organization, I am still approached by someone that has heard a radio interview I recorded in February, 2016, (which would have been our 31st wedding anniversary)  just 4 months after Chip’s death.  They call it “inspirational.”  All I know is, those anecdotes came from my heart.  I am very appreciative of each award, letter of encouragement, donation, the opportunities to organize outreach programs or speak to an individual or audience to encourage better heart health choices.  Our success story lead to something bigger than “us.”

For the next few weeks, we would like to feature real people/real stories.  Everyone has a story.  We hope to provide motivation and information from everyday people that are challenged by or recovering from a battle with heart disease.  Chip’n Away b@ Heart Disease brings to you, “You’re My Heart.”

Coach Narleski “Chip” Malone had no plays designed for the effects of this life-threatening opponent that he faced–heart disease. In true Coach Malone fashion, he did. All he knew was that “God is on my side.”

In 2017 we will embrace changes.


Though devastated by the sudden passing of my husband, the late Coach Chip Malone, I cherish the thirty years of wonderful memories and will work to help others in the fight against heart disease through the organization he founded.

After my husband’s death, there was an outpouring of respect, favorite stories, quotes and appreciation for the support he rendered to countless people that he came in contact with. Some of these things, his children nor I were aware of.

You never know the tremendous impact that can come from one individual. That one individual that will take challenges head-on. He touched so many lives and made everyone feel as though they were meant for greatness. My life partner didn’t take the short cuts and was bigger than life.

Because he said “I don’t want what happened to me to happen to have to happen to anybody,” after his heart transplant, we set out together taking the 4.5 year assignment seriously. We told our story of challenges, hope and of medical advancement to over 40,000 individuals of all ages and backgrounds throughout the state of Georgia.

Our story is one of success. I will honor the legacy he created by telling about Narleski “Chip” Malone, husband, father, former coach friend, author, and fighter who was given a second chance to live a life of triumph.
