Richard Can Now Rely on His Heart
Richard never suspected he would one day be stopped by a heart condition. He led a healthy life. He had no family history of heart disease. But heart disease had still found a way to change his life. After collapsing, doctors found a blockage in his heart.
When Richard began spending more time at the hospital than at home, it became apparent that he would need a new heart. He was placed on the transplant list in July 2009. Four months later, Richard received the call that would change his life forever. There was a heart available for him.
Richard is now living life to the fullest. “My wife and I can go for walks together, my children still have a father and I am looking forward to the next chapters in my life.”
With support from people like Richard and you, heart disease won’t win.
