I'm so happy to share that two of my friends and "Pump-Pals", Pam and Janet were featured on CTV Southwestern Ontario (local to Kitchener) to promote organ and tissue donation. It was great to see them exercising and sharing their story. I find that personable stories have a greater impact.
Pam has a Heartmate II, the same as what I had and Janet has a different kind of LVAD called Heartware. I don't know as much about Heartware but it is similar in concept to the Heartmate II. Both Pam and Janet are avid volunteers in the Life Donation Awareness Association of Midwest Ontario and are helping to make a difference in the world of organ and tissue donation.
Great job Pam and Janet!!
