Donor Spotlight

Robert Gnam

"I read your direct mail letter, featuring Diana Walch, fellow Brave Hearts member and was brought to tears because if you check your records the exact same thing happened to me on March 28, 2014, even to the point of the surgeon, Dr. Rovensky, being the surgeon who performed my quadruple bypass.

At that time the heart program was only two months old, but even then it performed like a Swiss watch. I have the highest praise and respect for all involved in the program.

I am a 79 yr old widower living alone and love to fish on the Captree boats and because of all your wonderful people in this program I am still able to care for myself and continue fishing.

I am so moved by my care that I am pledging to make a donation to Brave Hearts on a monthly basis to help support the program and make it grow.”
