From Heart Attack Survivor to Patient Ambassador, Volunteer Todd Hall Says, 'Every Day Is a Blessing.'

Posted by Cindy Hickey on Wed, Apr 26, 2017 - 3:28 PM in Ambassadors , Volunteers

         

It all happened so fast and without warning. Last June, before he could even draw his first monthly pension from Lockheed Martin, Todd Hall suffered a major heart attack necessitating emergency quintuple bypass surgery and later a defibrillator implant. Although he still wonders how many times he can cheat death, Todd, now a Mercy Heart Center volunteer and patient ambassador, says, "I've come to the conclusion that it's simply not my time yet, and I'm going to keep on enjoying life. Every day is a blessing."
