Boy: Hey, Gram, what are those purple footsteps?

Gram: I don't know, let's follow them.

Boy: This one says P-A-D. What's that?

Gram: Peripheral Arterial Disease, or clogged arteries in your legs. It says P-A-D raises the risk of heart attack and stroke especially if you're over 50.

Boy: Do you have P-A-D, Gram?

Gram: I don't know. But I'm sure going to ask my doctor about it. Now...are you ready to GO?

Boy: Yeah!

Announcer: Follow the purple footsteps at www dot ABOUT P-A-D dot org to learn more.
