As part of February’s Women’s Heart Disease Awareness month, The Cynthiana Democrat is sharing the stories of four women and their personal accounts of their own heart conditions and recoveries.
Diane Dixon was singing at Friendship Baptist Church one Sunday when she began having chest pains.
“It just felt like something kicked me in the chest,” Dixon said.
Dixon, who was 46 at the time, told her husband David to take her home.
But on the way home, on March 25, 2001, Dixon said she started having some second thoughts.
