Eileen was a two-pack-a-day smoker for 28 years. When she suffered a heart attack, the surgeon opened her chest and found a 98 percent blockage, and her arteries disintegrated. Eileen hasnít touched a cigarette since that day. She made a commitment for the sake of her son, her two grandsons, and the many lives that have depended on her as a volunteer firefighter and EMT. At the firehouse, Eileen educates her colleagues about womenís risk for heart disease and the signs of heart attack that are distinct to them.
