Andy had a stroke & heart attack at 44

He was just 44 years old.

A radical new treatment was performed just hours after two blockages were found in his brain.

Andy walked away from the hospital two days later, unassisted. The following day, he drove his car. The next day, he was back at work.

A follow-up MRI also revealed that Andy suffered a heart attack and had a 70% blockage of his left anterior descending artery.
