Matt Dobrowski walks on the treadmill and slowly creeps from walking to a jogging pace. That act doesn’t seem like much for a 44-year-old who looks to be in great health and enjoys an active lifestyle.
Matt knows he has some work to do as he prepares for the Set the Pace Road Race 5K, which benefits cardiovascular programs at South Shore Hospital, in June.
However, Matt does not take his fitness for granted anymore. Six months ago, Matt suffered a heart attack due to a 99 percent blockage of his left anterior descending (LAD) artery, more commonly known as a “widowmaker” heart attack.
