Heart Disease In Women
In the movies, men get heart attacks, women get their hearts broken. But reality is harsher — according to the American Heart Association, 1 in 3 women in the United States die of cardiovascular disease and stroke each year. (By comparison, 1 in 31 American women die annually of breast cancer.)
Composer Shares Joy with Patients
Grayson Neate Kabler was 60 years old when she discovered her greatest passion. The third-generation Columbia business owner spent years working in her family’s store, Neates, at Ninth and Broadway. She was also an equestrian, travel agent and, most importantly, a loving caregiver for her husband, Kary Kabler. Kary lived with multiple sclerosis for more than 40 years and required around-the-clock care. It was during this time that Grayson began to look for something she could do in their home ... something creative.
Flashback

Last May, Teresa Wren’s life nearly ended in three brief flashes.

First, she remembers waking up in the middle of the night. She felt hot. So she stood up, turned down the air conditioner in her Columbia home and went back to bed.

In the next scene, it was morning. Her husband, Charles, was standing at the bedroom door. “Are you going to get up?” he asked. Teresa didn’t respond.

Her final vision was her daughter, Lexi, standing over her — just for a moment. Then black.

Quick Action

 It was just your average Sunday. Glen Frerichs went up front and gave the announcements at his church, Trinity Lutheran, where he serves as an elder. He then went back to his seat and sat next to his wife, Kathy. The first hymn began to play and the church erupted into song. 

For the last verse of the hymn, the congregation rose from their seats, but when Glen got up, he knew something wasn’t right. A wave of dizziness hit him — and that’s the last Glen remembers of that morning until he awoke in the emergency room.

Get Strong, Stay Strong
The words women and weightlifting may make you picture female professional bodybuilders posing in a competition. But muscles are made for more than flexing; you literally couldn’t get out of bed without them. Our muscles help us do so much that it’s easy to take them for granted.
