Chest pain. Numbness in the left arm. Shortness of breath. Nausea. All textbook indicators of a heart attack and symptoms you would expect to happen to a male in his 60’s.

Mary Ann Garcia
Last February, as Mary Ann Garcia left her sister’s house to return to her home in Grape Creek, she found herself pulling over to the side of the road due to a pain in her chest.
