On January 4th, 1994, I suffered from a heart attack. I was only 33 years old. My youngest child was born three months earlier. I was holding him and feeding him a bottle when I felt shortness of breath and a little chest discomfort. Then my arm started to ache. I thought he was getting heavy, so I finished feeding him and laid him down. And that is how my story begins.

A little over ten months ago, I suffered a massive heart attack. It was one week to the day of my 47th birthday, one that I almost didn’t have the chance to celebrate. Other than taking medication for hypertension, I was considered to be in great health. My daily routine included at least 30 minutes of cardio activity. I ate a very healthy diet and was a non-smoker.
