Rachel’s Story

The ability to recognize the warning signs of a heart attack is crucial to saving a life. Res/Title Commercial Paralegal, Rachel Lesperance, understands the importance of this first hand.  Losing her father to an unexpected heart attack last October has been a tragedy and eye-opener for her.

“These signs are not something to ignore,” she explains.  She felt doctors were very nonchalant about her father’s symptoms because they weren’t the common ones such as a numb arm or chest pain. “It’s just very frustrating to realize.”

Her father, Steven P. Lesperance, was your average, fit, 59-year-old.  He was often fatigued and had high cholesterol, but doctors weren’t concerned. After a trip to the ER, he was sent home being treated for Shingles when the fatal heart attack happened five days later.

“He had all the other signs of a heart attack like cold clammy hands and tiredness.  It was like his body was trying to tell him something.” Rachel said. “Do not hesitate to be checked by a doctor if you have any of the symptoms.”

Beyond the Sign: Know Your Hospital

If you expect you or your family member is at risk, please contact your local hospital to find out if there is a CATH lab there, which allows patients in need to undergo a heart surgery if taken there under an attack.
