The facts of your case are somewhat confusing, but it seems like there may be some discrimination based on disability here. Were you employers aware of these health issues or should they have reasonably been aware? It could also be a matter of age discrimination, depending on your age, the age of your co-worker who was terminated, and the age of the person who filled the Coordinator position.
I would suggest that you speak with an employment attorney who can go over the specific facts of your case and decide what, if any, legal recourse you may have.

I agree that there isn't enough detail here to allow in informed response. Your questions suggest possible age discrimination, and also possible disability discrimination issues. If the company employs more than 15 employees, and the adverse actions taken within the last 180 days, it would be good for you to contact the Cleveland Field Office of the EEOC and www.eeoc.gov. The agency investigator can assist you in putting the case in a form in which you can learn if you have a case, and if the claim is strong, the agency will pursue it at no cost to you.
