Heart Exchange Support Group
Wishing everyone a PROSPEROUS 2022!
I would like to introduce Heart Exchange Support Group Member, Terry Smith Wright ( pictured to the left). Terry is a heart transplant receipient. Terry has been providing a Recipe every other Week to us for the past few months. As we all know, waiting for a transplant or being a transplant recipient requires maintaining a healthy diet. Terry will continue to provide us with a transplant healthy recipe. We would LOVE for you to ENGAGE with Terry and offer your feedback to her in the comments section. And, if you have a transplant healthy recipe, please submit it to Terry. We look forward to hearing from you!!!
