stories with heart Dancing Strong

I was dancing at a family wedding and I began to feel very tired. I was shocked when my doctor told me I had four blockages in my heart.

I love to dance, and I’m proud to say I can outlast people half my age on the dance floor. Three years ago I was dancing at a family wedding and began to feel very tired after only a few minutes. I thought I was just having a bad day, but that was just the beginning. My health began to get worse over the next few months and then one day, I just couldn't function and had to call an ambulance. I was shocked when my doctor told me I had four blockages in my heart, ranging from 100% to 50%. In other words, my heart was operating at only one quarter capacity!

Thanks to the doctors at the CK Hui Heart Centre, I had stents installed to clear the worst blockages. I realized what a close call I had, and decided to make some serious changes to save my life. Along with my wonderful wife, I eat better now, I get more exercise, and we enjoy life a lot more.

Everyone needs to take care of themselves, but people in my community are at much greater risk for heart problems. So I hope everyone will start to lead much healthier lives.
