HCMA Founder Has Successful Heart Transplant

Lisa Salberg, Founder and CEO of the Hypertrophic Cardiomyopathy Association, underwent a successful heart transplant last week at New Jersey’s Newark Beth Israel Hospital. Her  experience is featured in this article published today on NorthJersey.com  (The Bergen Record).

Lisa’s future plans include continuing her many advocacy efforts on behalf of HCM patients, as well as running in a 5K race.  We have a feeling that Lisa will be competing in Track & Field events at the Transplant Games of America before you know it!

EDITED TO ADD STORIES ABOUT LISA HOLDING HER OLD HEART IN HER HANDS ON VALENTINE’S DAY IN ORDER TO EDUCATE OTHERS ABOUT HCM.
