Another Spring Break… Another Heart Valve Journals Reunion in Florida

By Adam Pick on April 19, 2013

This is just great.

I was just surfing through Heart Valve Journals when I came across a wonderful update from Cheryl Irvine. Cheryl is a long-time journalist and mitral valve surgery patient. In some regard, Cheryl is a metaphorical “Mom” of the patient community.

As you might recall from this post, Cheryl, who lives in Ontario, Canada, organized a spring break reunion of several patients from HVJ in Florida in 2012. Well, this year… She did it again!

As Cheryl writes, “Just dropping by to add a couple of pictures to my journal. For the second year in a row we arranged a small get-together in sunny Florida with HVJ friends Duane and Peggy Hunt and Fran and Peter Zilko. Unfortunately Susan and Richard Ingham couldn’t attend in person so we managed to visit via Skype.” To read more from Cheryl’s journal, click here.

Thanks so much to Cheryl for sharing the picture and the reunion update from Florida!

Keep on tickin!
