She first started suffering from "heart episodes" in her early 40s. After suffering nearly 30 different episodes Laura went to see her doctor and they discovered that nearly 80% of her main artery had been blocked. She was immediately scheduled for surgery, where she needed to have a triple bypass procedure. Now she realizes she needs to make herself more of a priority and take charge of her own heart health.
