A Message from Our 2013 Toledo Heart Ball Chair
We are excited about getting everyone together to “Ignite” the new gala and get our community together. We want to include all our member of the medical community including patients, health allied, nurses, administrators and physicians. We would like to recognize the role of a very common disease that affects our patients, heart failure. The projected number of those affected with heart failure in ten years is 7.5 million. Our goal is to bring focus on research and education in treating Advanced Heart Failure. Our heart cannot work without both chambers just like our community cannot work successfully in building jobs, creating hope, and being prosperous without each other working together….democrat, republican, red, blue, young, old.
There is much to do… but together we can “Ignite” a spark of awareness for the lives of many. Thank you again for your generous support and commitment to our mission. We are making an impact on our community.
