Carolyn Driedger’s Story

I was touched when I read that Roth Staffing has developed a partnership with the American Heart Association. My mother-in-law, Shirley, experienced her first heart attack 18 years ago and needed a heart valve replacement. The surgery went smoothly and for six more years she led a practically healthy life.

However, by the year 2000, my mother-in-law had worn out the first valve and required a second heart valve replacement. During this second surgery, doctors also added a pace maker to keep her heartbeat regular. These life changing events have been a huge reminder for my whole family that heart health is very important.

Thanks to the research and development of the American Heart Association, my mother-in-law is alive and doing well at the age of 90 and able to watch her nine grandchildren grow up! We’re thankful to have her!
