    I would like to thank my Kaiser Cardiologist Dr. Mercado at Baldwin Park Kaiser. Dr. Mercado you started me on the road to my new life. I guess you can say you started me down the yellow brick road to get on the heart transplant list. I never got a chance to say thank You for always making me feel like I was the most important patient you had. I received my greatest gift on 9/22/13 at Cedars Sinai and I am now 1 Year post Heart Transplant and Dr Howard and Sue are my new guardian Angels. Thank to Kaiser and there Dr’s I am out on the field and out on the court coaching my sons sports teams.

    I have known and worked with Bob for over 20yrs. I recently had the opportunity to spend an afternoon with Bob ans Cherrie and he couldn’t have looked better. Thanks to the Kaiser people for a job well done and to the Donor who gave up the most precious gift.
