Heart Exchange Support Group

Greetings,

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!!!

Sincerely,

John Guidry, Heart Exchange President

We’ve been where you are. We know what its like to be told, “You need a transplant.”

We know what its like to wait and we know what its like when the wait is over. The life ahead of you can be wonderful. And we would like to share our perspective with you.  Just contact us or If you are a patient at CHI St. Luke's Health–Baylor St. Luke’s Medical Center in Houston, Texas, just tell your nurse that you’d like us to visit and we will be there.
