As a Fire/EMS professional with the Danville Fire Department, Gary was accustomed to saving lives. However, in October of 2011, Gary did one small and simple thing that ended up saving his.
Gary and his wife saw an ad for a $49 heart scan in the newspaper and made a pact to get a scan together. They knew they were at an age when they should have it done, and the price was definitely right, so they scheduled the scan.
His wife's scan came back clear. The digital image of Gary's heart revealed extensive calcium buildup. After consulting with his family practice physician, Dr. Thomas H. Jones, and cardiologist, Dr. Robert D, Glassman, Gary underwent bypass heart surgery. Because he got the scan, Gary avoided a heart attack and ultimately experienced no permanent heart damage.
