"I'm so lucky to have sought a second opinion....
...through The Way To My Heart and found an advanced skilled vascular specialist! He sees us as partners for life. And he’s committed to help me continue to stand on TWO feet.
If I could do it all over again, I would’ve contacted The Way To My Heart sooner to find out all of my options and learn how to select the most advanced vascular specialist before any procedure…But I can’t go back. And I’m O.K. with that…. because I know that, just my teeth, my arteries are now just part of my body maintenance routine…as I continue to pursue a better quality of life while living with P.A.D."
How Sheriff John Prevented Amputation
"What has kept me motivated was noticing that the harder I worked, the more enjoyable my life became. My workouts have now accelerated to lifting weights six days a week. I also do heavy bag training, jump rope, farmer carries (an exercise), and walking (of course!). My fiancé and I also do what we call "feel good" workouts, which DO NOT FEEL GOOD!! LOL! It's weight lifting with light weights and cardio incorporated into it. But I am rolling into 2022 feeling better than I have in years. I am still blessed with both legs. I have my job as a sheriff's deputy!"
