Hear from someone who’s been through it: Meet Steve

After running for cover in the rain, Steve felt sharp pains shooting up the middle of his back. “I just thought it was pains from getting older, and I didn’t give it a second thought,” Steve says. “Little did I know, I was on the verge of a massive heart attack.”

After a few tests at Florida Medical Center, Steve was admitted to the hospital on the spot. “Not only had I failed all of the tests, but the results also showed severe blockages in the arteries leading to my heart,” he says. “It was truly a miracle that I was still alive.”
