Rock City, IL (PRWEB) July 31, 2009
Patrick Fox suffered a massive heart attack commonly called "The Widow Maker" in 2008. (Tim Russert of NBC News' Washington Chief died on June 13, 2008 of this same heart condition.) 90% of everyone who has severe blockage of the left coronary artery dies. Being a survivor, he has written a book to help other victims "The Widow Maker Heart Attack at Age 48".
In writing this book, Fox's goal is to help other families and loved ones facing the same devastating unfamiliar territory as his family faced on March 31, 2008. It provides much needed support for loved ones of heart attack victims so that they might be able to understand what the patient is going through and what they might do to help better deal with the traumatic experience. It offers insight to the life of the post heart attack victim.
Patrick's first year of life after suffering his heart attack is chronicled in the book, combined with his evolving physical and psychological progress. "I am a living miracle survivor of a massive heart attack, both physically and emotionally", states Fox. The book "The Widow-Maker Heart Attack At Age 48" has a great deal to relay about heart disease, surviving heart attacks, the depression and physical recovery from heart attacks.
The vast majority of books have been written by someone in the medical field. "Widow-Maker Heart Attack At Age 48" was written to assist heart attack victims and their loved ones to deal with the emotional and physical effect realized when an attack takes place. http://www.aolhealth.com/health/feature/_a/heart-attack-survivor-story/20090618181609990001
Mr. Fox explains, "I feel that the event in 2008 was a life defining moment. If there was only one special circumstance that enabled by survival I would not have felt that way. In my instance there were no less than ten circumstances that had to work in concert with each other to ensure my survival. I was given the chance to live for a reason; that reason being to educate others to the dangers of heart disease."
Many reviews of the book may be found at http://www.amazon.com and http://www.bn.com. The readers find it a compelling story format. He shares his experience as a heart attack survivor, the experiences of his wife of 27 years and two adult children providing important information that will be helpful to others. Definitely a compelling read: a hard one to put down.
