I never imagined the toll heart disease would have on my life.  I had a stroke in 2000, a heart attack in 2004 and was in complete heart failure in 2013.  Medical advances have helped to keep me alive for years, but it was a heart transplant in 2017 that has given me new life.  At age 45, I never thought that I would live to see my grandchildren graduate from elementary school, but now I look forward to seeing them graduate from college.  And being able to do that with the love of my life, Patty, makes it even more special.
