Keon McKinney, husband of School of Social Work advisor Jerey McKinney, shared his story with the Illinois Heart and Lung Foundation ahead of an upcoming event at Illinois State.

The Illinois Heart and Lung Foundation is sponsor of the 15th annual Women’s Health Night on March 5, 2013, from 3-7:30 p.m. at Bone Student Center. Women’s Health Night has grown to be the largest free Community Health Fair in McLean County with over 2,000 women and men attending. The goal is to provide as many free educational opportunities as possible at no charge to the community.

You can read Keon’s first-person account of Jerey’s recent health scare on the Illinois Heart and Lung Foundation website.

“The recent actions have shown me that life is precious, and we should live it to the fullest. It’s even better when you have someone special to share it with,” Keon wrote.
