YASKARY'S STORY

When Yaskary was 15, her mother died in the hospital 2 days after a massive heart attack. Her aunt and father later died of heart disease, and her sister survived a heart attack. Yaskary realized her life would be no different unless she took action. At 49, Yaskary noticed slight pressure around her left shoulder, and hours later, she underwent a quintuple bypass. Yaskary knows her life was spared because she understood the risk she inherited. For her, the scar on her chest serves as a symbol of life.
