All of You have ensured financial support for heart patients & the purchases of life saving cardiac equipment for our CR Hospital. Anyone is welcome to join us. We are not affiliated with the Heart & Stroke Foundation nor do we receive any govt. funding. We are a local support group for heart patients and their families, all volunteers. The funds are raised locally and stay local!
See you next year!
