Today is International Gratitude Day, and and there are so many reasons why we are grateful today! We are grateful when children can laugh and play, despite their severe heart disease! We are grateful when our EXCOR® patients finally receive a donor heart, after a long time of waiting. We are grateful when former patients find their way back into life and enjoy the time with their loved ones. And of course we are so grateful for our employees, for whom the person behind the system always comes first. What are you grateful for today?
