Billie Elder loves the outdoors. It’s how she was raised – spending days walking her dogs, swimming, soaking in the sun. It’s how she raised her own children. And, it’s how she planned to begin her retirement.
When it came to plans, Billie had big ones: travel, a house renovation, and active dogs she loved taking outside. With children, grandchildren and friends in Florida, Georgia and Texas, Billie and her husband were looking forward to the road ahead.
But Billie’s intuition was telling her something wasn’t quite right. Her energy levels had waned. She was exhausted and having trouble breathing. When everyday activities like taking a shower and going out to dinner became more than Billie could bear, she knew she had to see her doctor.
