100th LVAD Celebration

What a milestone! One hundred lives touched with the use of a mechanical heart. I am proud to be one of those lives.

I was kindly invited to the 100th LVAD Celebration at Toronto General Hospital on May 11th, 2011. I was also given the pleasure to speak about my experience and express my gratitude to the medical staff and financial donors. Here are some great pics:

  1. 100th LVAD total or in Canada? Just curious

  2. Good question. Sorry I wasn't clear. It's the 100th LVAD for Toronto General Hospital.
