Alive and Kicking

Alive and Kicking

Your support of the Mercy Health Foundation – Tiffin over many years has helped people like Lew Campbell enjoy life for many more years than he may have. To say that Lew is a survivor is to put it mildly. Lew had his first open heart surgery at the age of 42 in 1977. Thirty-five years later he has survived two additional heart attacks and his body houses nine stents. And he is alive and kicking today! Lew credits the medical care he has received from his physicians, nurses and the Mercy Health – Tiffin Hospital cardiac rehabilitation program that he has utilized for 35 years. And thanks to you, much of the equipment has remained state-of-the-art. In an area that began with just one treadmill and a Schwinn Airdyne, upgraded equipment purchased through donations from donors such as you, has assured that the Mercy Tiffin cardiopulmonary rehab program has thrived. Lew’s wife Carol feels very comfortable in knowing that her husband is getting needed exercise while being monitored by the nurses. Lew and the others in the cardiopulmonary program thank you and greatly appreciate the modern equipment utilized in the current cardiopulmonary rehabilitation department. The latest of these are a pair of new treadmills.

“You never know when you might be the one that needs equipment like this,” Patty Cole said.

Patty and her husband, Charles, donated toward the new treadmills. Thanks to his caring wife and Mercy’s cardiopulmonary rehabilitation program and donors to the Mercy Health Foundation – Tiffin such as you, Lew is able to continue to enjoy life – longer than he once expected.
