Letters: Heart help appreciated in Richmond

A Richmond News reader sent a "heartfelt" thanks to all who helped her following a heart attack
Richmond Fire-Rescue was one of the many agencies that came to the aid of a Richmond News reader

Dear Editor,

From the moment Company Officer Mike Rende and his No. 2 Hall crew arrived at our home along with two ambulances, we knew we were in good hands. 

I was in the throes of a heart attack and the care I received from everyone attending to me was amazing!

Once I arrived at Richmond Hospital, the due diligence of staff was more than I could imagine, and the nurses went above and beyond to keep me in good spirits during my nine days, seven of which were in ICU. 

We can’t say enough about our health-care system, and we are so blessed to have had such dedicated and top notch doctors and nurses, along with all the staff at both Richmond and Vancouver General Hospital, where my procedures were done. 

Our “heartfelt” thanks go out to Richmond Fire Rescue, BC Ambulance and all the staff at RH and VGH. You guys are awesome!

Kathy Schwab
