"I still remember my Dad handing the Felician Sisters that first check for $40,000. I treasure those memories and feel blessed to be here, almost 35 years later, continuing to support the mission of the Sisters, and, the Hearts of Livonia. It is gratifying to give back to the Hospital and see our donations at work. This Generations Together Campaign hits close to home for me. When I think about the efforts my Dad started and the work the Hearts of Livonia Board and volunteers are committed to continuing, it is only fitting that our organization carries forward this legacy."
