    Just want to share some exciting news I received today. Our host hospital, Lancaster General Hospital is giving a grant of $5200 over a two year period toward our satellite's membership dues for the first 20 members and toward monthly meeting costs. It's great to have LGH's support and encouragement for our "baby" visiting program. We are currently visiting only open heart surgery patients until we get more established and train more accredited visitors. The nurses on the OHS floor are totally on board and supportive.

    Ron,
         I wanted to thank you for sharing this wonderful news. It's amazing when hospitals work side by side with our Chapters. I hope all is well with you and your family and you have a Merry Christmas.

    Joe, also you asked how much are the local dues.  We pay $8 to Chapter 140 per year. It's their requirement.

    I have a simple question, has any one received a heart transplant?

    I know someone who has.  I was on the list because of a low ejection fraction (mine dropped to 10), but took myself off, because I have severe drug allergies and would never be able to take all the anti-rejection drugs.  And I've gotten my EF to 40-45, which is great for me.

    Hi Francee,
     How did you improve your ejection fraction?
    Regards,

    Joe, because we are a satellite under Chapter 140 in Passaic N.J. we have to pay their local dues as well as the national dues. Lancaster General Hospital is going to pay all the dues for our first 20 new members for their first and second year's membership.
