Kathy: A heart attack at 47 years of age

Kathy Roberson went to the Emergency Room at Baptist Beaches complaining of chest pain she attributed to bronchitis. An EKG test showed the actual cause of the pain was a 95 percent blockage in an artery. Kathy, 47, was having a heart attack.

“People started swarming me and feeding me baby aspirin and nitroglycerin, and they’re telling me ‘you’re having a heart attack and we’re life-flighting you downtown,’” Kathy recalls. She remembers her response: “What are you talking about? I have bronchitis.”

“I could have died and I wouldn’t have even known that it was happening.”

Kathy has worked hard on her recovery and has changed her life.
