My artwork is based off Jason Linger's research. The red words represent the blood flow and are all related to the disease. The pale pink of the heart, inside of the ripping, is the part that balloons out and restricts the blood flow. My artwork looks burned and destroyed in order to show how destructive this condition can be. The framed-looking pictures are of those affected by this. It occurs in both males and females and is the leading cause of death in athletes under 30. It can also be present in those who aren't athletes.
