In February of last year, Donna Danielli, a donor to MDHF, was surprised to discover during a routine angiogram—a scan revealing blood flow through arteries, veins, and the heart—that she had an 80% blockage. After receiving these results, she felt frightened, vulnerable and alone. She didn’t know how she was going to manage her new reality of being a cardiac patient until receiving a call from a nurse at the Cardiac Rehab Department at Milton District Hospital. Donna expressed her concerns and the nurse simply said, “We’ve Got You!” All of a sudden, Donna had a whole team behind her. She was taught exercises to support her health and she attended workshops to learn about healthy eating and living. Donna said, “I could feel that I wasn’t just another patient.  They cared and wanted to know me as a person. This made a difference because I felt welcome, supported and accepted.”  After making significant changes in her life, Donna was eating and sleeping better.  More importantly, she no longer felt like she was alone in her health care journey. Since Donna’s diagnosis, she has attended MDHF events and donates to the hospital. She reflects, “The team at MDH made me feel confident that I could make the necessary changes in my life. They were generous with their knowledge and experience and that helped me on my journey. I don’t know where I would be without this support.”
