“ A FEW HOURS LATER , I WAS THINKING CLEARER . IT WAS LIKE I WAS 20 YEARS YOUNGER .”
— Bill Fortney , Heart Care Success Story
Bill Fortney promised his wife , Sherelene , they would celebrate their 50-year wedding anniversary . But about a week before the big date , he began having intense chest pressure that put those plans — and his life — in peril . He drove himself to Baptist Health Corbin , where his doctor found a 95 % blockage in his left anterior descending artery , commonly called the “ widow maker .” After a procedure to open the artery and insert a stent , Bill , a Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer , delivered on his promise . “ She got her wish , and I got to stick around for a little longer ,” he said . “ It ’ s a good ending .” Learn more about our advanced Heart Care services at BaptistHealth . com / HeartCare .
