Her husband is her 'hero'
Grady Nolans quick reaction helped save wifes life
Peggy Nolan of Demorest returned home after a one-mile walk in early April and went into full cardiac arrest. Her husband Grady went into action and began CPR until EMTs arrived and took over. He later was told by doctors at the Ronnie Green Heart Center at the Northeast Georgia Medical Center that only 10 percent of people survive a full cardiac arrest outside of a medical facility.
“It will be a blessed Mother’s Day for my kids, my granddaughter, my wife,” Grady Nolan said, his voice cracking slightly. “And for me.” The holiday will be all the sweeter to the Nolan family of Demorest, after his wife of 52 years, Peggy Nolan, recently survived cardiac arrest.
