After a lifetime of living with heart disease, Kathy Webster of Kansas City helps spread awareness about women’s heart disease
"After you've had heart disease or survived a heart attack, you go through a period of fear and sadness," says Kathy Webster, local bank officer and cardiology patient. "You wonder why it had to happen to you, and you wonder, 'What if it happens again?'"
Webster gets it because she's been through it.
At the age of 4, she had her first heart procedure, a catheterization to examine a heart murmur at Henry Ford Hospital in Detroit. At 18, she received treatment for supravalvular aortic stenosis – a heart defect that develops before birth – at the Mayo Clinic.
