Runge native Kelley Drastata is never too far from her telephone. No, she is not a teenager, she is waiting for the phone call that will change her life. Kelley is waiting for a new heart.

The 36-year-old wife and mother’s life changed irreparably on January 25 when she suffered a heart attack while exercising.

“I started to work out with a boot camp and on the fourth day I was doing a sit up when I started having chest pains,” Kelley said. Before beginning the class she saw her family physician and got a checkup to ensure she was healthy enough to begin an exercise program. With no previous medical issues, she was given a clean bill of health.

“I had never even drank or smoked,” she added.
