I have started and re-started this blog so many times but I guess until now I have not really been ready to completely share this experience with the world. I was in heart failure for 9 years, had my first heart transplant for 3 years, and in January 2018 received my second heart transplant. I am driven to share my story more widely in hopes that my experiences may help someone else, and to help others through a charity I co-founded called HeartLife Foundation of Canada. I found that as I learned more about my condition, read about others’ stories, met with other patients and family carers, my perspective changed and so did my hope for the future.
This blog is my chronicle and this is my story.
