I am a 65 yr old retired Cardiovascular Perfusionist. Worked with Dr. Cooley and Dr.DeBakey in Houston, Texas. I am a Ambassador of Hope for LifeGift. We have 7 grandchildren and a very loving family. I have Lupus, Demylinating Polyneuropathy, and SVC Syndrome. I have had a Medtronic Pain Pump implanted that has changed my life for the better. If I can share any of my experience or knowledge I would be happy to.
