Meet Mary, a proud grandmother who loves to cheer her grandson on at soccer games. When Mary recently collapsed with chest and arm pain, she was rushed to the hospital and had to have bypass surgery.
“They took care of me perfectly. I was scared but they made me feel so comfortable, all the nurses and the doctors were wonderful.” After surgery and recovery, it was recommended that Mary join a program at the Cardiac and Pulmonary Rehabilitation Center at Cookeville Regional.
“I have always worked to provide for my family. But once I got sick, things got bad. When I couldn’t work anymore, we used our savings fairly quickly. Within a few months I didn’t even know how I would afford to feed my family, keep the lights on or even pay for the gas to get me to my radiation treatments”. – Phillip
