Evelyn was a communications professor at John Carroll University.
While in her fifties, she suffered two heart attacks.
After she underwent an angioplasty and a triple bypass, her cardiologist told her there was nothing more he could do for her and that she probably wouldn’t live out the year.
Soon after, she met Dr. Caldwell Esselstyn who suggested she would be a good candidate for a heart disease program he was starting.
