"I had two heart attacks. I have a pacemaker and it really changes your life after you've had a heart attack. It's hard to realize that you can't do what you used to do anymore, but I try to keep doing it you know everyday," says Bonnie McBrayer.
McBrayer recommends slowing down, but says heart trouble hasn't stopped her.
Cardiac rehab and lifestyle changes make a difference. At 71 years old, she keeps going and enjoying life.
