Six years ago, Ted's life changed forever. At 45 years old, Ted began to experience extreme back pain and profuse sweating. His wife recognized this as the signs of a heart attack and immediately dialed 911. Ted was later brought to AdventHealth Heart, Lung and Vascular Institute. Ted suffered from a severe heart attack which led to a bleak diagnosis of heart failure.

Through the help of the Trina Hidalgo Heart Care Center, Ted has made a significant recovery. A regular patient of the Center for over 6 years now, Ted has regained normal pumping function of his heart and even been able to return to work.

Ted says he would not be where his is today without the Heart Care Center, They saved my life and got me back to work. Now I can support my family and that means everything to me.
