WTMJ is teaming up with the American Heart Association to raise awareness about the nation’s number one killer- heart disease.
Today, we share the story of Gary Loop.
Gary suffered a stroke at the age of 48, after doing some heavy lifting.
The lifting unknowingly caused his carotid artery to sever, leading to a blood clot, no blood flow and a subsequent stroke.
Gary sat down with WTMJ’s Gene Mueller. Hear more in the player above.
