Denni's Story

When Dennis's family doctor asked Dennis how he was feeling during a routine exam more than 3 years ago, the 54-year-old nonsmoker from Maryland mentioned he'd been feeling tired and sluggish.

Unknowingly, this remark may have saved his life. His doctor referred Dennis to a cardiologist for a stress test, which soon revealed a very serious condition – one of his coronary arteries had a 95% blockage. The cardiologist told Dennis that he was "a heart attack waiting to happen" – it wasn't a question of "if" he might have a heart attack, but "when."
