President’s Message


Welcome to your April 2018 Mended Heart Chapter Newsletter….

I hope you are all enjoying Spring and the beautiful weather we have been having with lots of warm days (no humidity) and cool nights.

The flowers and trees are bursting open with vivid colors and vibrant greens.  Go out and enjoy Mother Nature’s table of beauty.

March’s meeting was cancelled due to terrible weather including tornado activities in the area.  Our speaker was to be from Mended Little Hearts.  As you may recall we were collecting items for our Mended Little Hearts people.  So please bring any items you have to our April 17th meeting.  Thanks in advance for your donations to this noble cause.

Some of your Chapter 296 members attended this year’s American Congress of Cardiologists Conference recently held at the Orange County Convention Center.  I was one of those representing Mended Hearts National at a table set up to educate and present what Mended Hearts does for cardiac patients.  We had a number of doctors and others stop by the table.

This years National Mended Hearts Conference is being held July 14-18 in the city of San Antonio.  If interested in attending the time to act is now.  Registration and more information can be found online at the National Mended Hearts website.

Hope to see you at the April 17th meeting which will be held at Florida Hospital at the Barker Conference Center where our guest speaker will be Beverly Mansker, Nurse Navigator for TAVR at Florida Hospital.

Till then stay safe, healthy and happy.

Peace & Love,
