Chicago, IL (PRWEB) August 5, 2009
Patrick Fox is considered a 'medical miracle' by many health professionals, and it is that accomplishment that has encouraged him to share his story with others.
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.
In writing this book, Fox's goal was to help other families and loved ones facing the same devastating unfamiliar territory as his family faced on March 31, 2008. It provides timeless support for loved ones of heart attack victims so that they might better be able to understand what the patient is going through and what they might do to help the victims better deal with the experience. It offers insight to the post heart attack life as victims recover. http://www.widowmakerheartattack.com
The book provides much needed insight into critical topics that become part of the day to day lives of heart attack victims. The author laments about the mental side of first symptoms of actually experiencing a heart attack, emergency room feelings, mental challenges associated with dying, physical and emotional thoughts of waking up in the ICU, first day emotional panic, first night death feelings, prescription drugs, and cardio rehab, are all addressed.
"The vast majority of heart attack books are written by health professionals or doctors who speak from their educational background, rather than firsthand experience," adds Fox. "My book speaks to the doctors, patients, hospitals, and loved ones from the patient's perspective, providing insights not often heard." http://www.aolhealth.com/health/feature/_a/heart-attack-survivor-story/20090618181609990001
"This book should be provided to every heart attack patient, families in the hospital, cardiovascular specialists and educators of heart attack health," says Patrick Fox. "I will travel anywhere and everywhere I need to in order for it to be purchased by those that it is targeted," states Fox.
