It was because of Leslie’s sister Vicki, that her life was saved.
Leslie Bayer’s sister, Vicki, lost her battle with heart disease, without ever knowing she was in a fight. The tragedy prompted Leslie to see a cardiologist about her own heart health. It was determined that Leslie needed a defibrillator implanted in her chest. One day, while working out, the defibrillator fired a total of five times. It was because of Leslie’s sister Vicki, that her life was saved.
