FEBRUARY IS HEART MONTH!
5 years ago I had open heart surgery at the University of Ottawa Heart Institute. I had a double heart valve transplant and it changed my life forever. The Doctors, nurses and volunteers all played an important role in my recovery and my current connection with The Heart Institute. I wanted to give back so I decided to volunteer and I am now a Director on The University of Heart Institute Patient Alumni Association. You can also give back by donating any amount of money – every dollar helps! This money assists with critical purchases of life-saving equipment, amongst many other wonderful initiatives. So many people have been touched by The Heart Institute – whether they have helped you, a family member or a friend, please help me continue to give back.
Thanks so much for your support.
