Paul King was hiking near his home in Owen Sound when he felt a sudden tightness in his chest and pain in one arm. When he decided to see his doctor about it, Paul thought he would leave the appointment with just a prescription.

Tests revealed that Paul had serious blockages in his heart arteries, which required bypass surgery. He was shocked because he led an active life — he had played hockey the week before. With the COVID-19 pandemic stretching Ontario’s healthcare system to the breaking point, his surgery was rescheduled three times.

When Paul finally had his surgery, it took seven hours to correct seven blockages. His cardiac rehabilitation program was delayed due to the pandemic, but Paul didn’t give up hope. He followed his medical team’s advice and diligently worked on exercise and more. A few months later, he was able to resume hiking and cycling.

Paul’s experience battling heart disease has given him a new perspective. He talks about it with friends and family, encouraging them to be informed about heart health. Paul is grateful for the research and medical care that helped him beat heart disease.

“I’ve been given a second chance” he says.
