For Parksville transplant recipient, life is all heart (500th heart transplant)
Parksville’s Ron Wakefield was knocking on death’s door two years ago when a heart transplant changed everything.
“I was not in good shape at all,” he said. “If I had to walk up my drive, about 100 feet, I’d have to stop three times.”
Wakefield’s wait ended in June 2017 with a call from St. Paul’s Hospital in Vancouver.
