Joe

Faced Heart Surgery

From his high-pressure job to baseball games with his sons, Joe is always on the go. After having unsettling chest pressure, doctors discovered Joe had an undetected heart defect that resulted in a life-threatening aneurysm. For years, doctors monitored his heart. But with time, Joe needed to have open-heart surgery. Today, he has an even greater appreciation for life.
