In Your Community
Dee Garrison from Bairoil, Wyoming, became a passionate advocate for heart health after enduring a series of heart-related challenges. Despite years of feeling unwell and being misdiagnosed, Dee had her first heart attack in 2007, followed by another in 2012. Through CPR, medical intervention, and her own resilience, she survived both incidents. Retirement followed as she coped with ongoing chest pains and fear of the next attack. It wasn't until 2014, during a cardiac catheterization, that a birth defect—a hole in her heart—was discovered. With advances in medical care and the grace of God, Dee is now on the path to recovery, sharing her story to raise awareness and make the fight against heart disease a priority in Wyoming.
