Linda Priddy had a heart attack 16 years ago. A blood clot formed at a stent that had been inserted in a blocked artery three months earlier. The damage caused her to lose one-third of her heart function. At age 74, Linda has heart failure and angina, which causes chest pain and pressure. “When I walked, especially going uphill, I had pain and would stop to rest maybe two to three times,” Linda says. She also took nitroglycerin at night since chest pains woke her up.

For the past 17 years, Debi Sue Aven and her family have lived off a small winding road in Georgetown, Indiana, on a farm with the prettiest of green views. She and her husband, Mike, have three daughters and a son and seem to lead an ordinary life. What’s not so ordinary, though, is that they own, breed, and board llamas and alpacas.
