Milestone all about heart (500th heart transplant)

British Columbia has passed an amazing healthcare marker after a 33-year-old Vancouver man who suffered from heart failure got a second chance at life after receiving the 500th heart transplant performed in B.C.
 
Marc Bains, who received his new heart in June at St. Paul’s Hospital after a 10-month wait, is now looking forward to resuming a normal life.
 
“I’m excited about the freedom a new heart gives me to live my life. I will be able to play sports again, travel with my wife, attend events, all without struggling from heart failure,” said Bains.
