Women & Heart Disease
Jamie McNamee had a heart attack at age 42… this past year. Looking at Jamie- you’d never guess she’d be at risk for a heart attack. Jamie was a college tennis player and continues to be fit and extremely active. High cholesterol runs in Jamie’s family- but because she was so fit and did not have any other risk factors- she didn’t take medication to control her cholesterol.
Jamie had her heart attack as she pulled into a parking lot. She walked into a meeting and realized she was having the signs of a heart attack. She had someone rush her to Providence Portland Medical Center where Cardiologist Dr. Doug Dawley put two stents in her (to open arteries).
