Mader, who has suffered from 18 heart attacks, says he could feel the difference right away.</p><p>“I feel better than I did at 22, when I had my first heart attack,” Mader says. “So it’s been a night and day difference.”</p> Thu, 30 May 2013 22:22:51 +0000 Andrea Smardon 30129 at http://kuer.org Utah Man Doing Well After Historic Transplant
