At Tucker Publishing Group, almost every one of us has a story relating to a family member or a friend who has suffered from multiple heart attacks, a quintuple coronary artery bypass surgery, or a congenital heart defect.

Jennifer Rhoades: “My maternal grandmother suffered from diabetic heart disease.”

Jessica Hoffman: “My grandma had a heart attack.”

Katelyn Phillips: “My friend’s 18-month-old son has a congenital heart defect. He has had numerous heart surgeries since his birth, and my step-father had a heart attack in 1999.”

Krista McDonald: “In March 2012, my boyfriend’s father had quintuple coronary artery bypass surgery. He has a family history of heart problems; his grandfather died of a heart attack.”

Kristen Tucker: “My dad died from a heart attack at age 44, when I was 14.”

Laura Mathis: “My husband Mark had a stent put in his heart when he suffered a near heart attack 13 years ago at the age of 39.”

Nick Hebebrand: “My grandpa has had three heart attacks. The most recent one happened when I was 8 years old, so I didn’t really understand the seriousness of it. I just wanted to be the one to call 9-1-1.”

Todd Tucker: “Heart disease in my family meant I never met my wife of 25 years’ father and my boys never met their grandfather.”
