Meka Green remembers Sept. 28, 2020 as the day she died.
The morning began normally. Green woke up, brushed her teeth and felt fine at first. But then her heart raced so hard she could hear it. She felt faint and collapsed to the floor. She didn’t want to call 911 – she believed it was safest to avoid hospitals during Covid-19 – so she hoped that laying down would help. It didn’t.
