Two Lives Saved!

March 9, 2008

As you may already know, Pacemaker Club donates a portion of sales to Heartbeat International, a non-profit charity who implants pacemakers and defibrillators free-of-charge in patients from developing countries. Pacemaker Club donated $500 in December 2007.  This brings the total donated so far to $1,000, which is enough to save two lives. Many thanks to those who purchased merchandise in 2007 as this donation would not have been possible without you!

It is estimated that one million people die or suffer each year because they can not afford a cardiac pacemaker or defibrillator. So please, visit www.heartbeatintl.org to learn more about their mission, volunteer or donate.

The experience of having a couple of lengths of wire fed into your heart muscle and an electronic 'box' tucked under the skin is not an insignificant event, but you will survive.
