Heart to Heart from Dr. James T. Willerson

December 20, 2012

An attitude of gratitude

Symbol of Excellence 
We have almost come to the end of a remarkable 50th anniversary year at the Texas Heart Institute, and I want to thank you and wish you the happiest of holidays. We celebrate the season with a definite attitude of gratitude.

For the 22nd consecutive year, THI remains ranked among the nation's top 10 heart centers and our ground-breaking, life-saving research and education programs continue apace. 

We close out the year with more forward momentum in this week's announcement that THI, after a nationwide competition, was chosen as the Biorepository Core Lab for the National Heart Lung and Blood Institute's network of cardiac stem cell research facilities, the Cardiovascular Cell Therapy Research Network (CCTRN). 

This means we will store, catalog and make available for approved research adult stem cells to laboratories throughout the nation engaged in this game-changing research. It is an honor and responsibility we gladly accept and, again, it is largely due to you and your support. 

You made it all possible. You helped us save lives. You helped us reach out to women and children to support their heart health through new research, education and community programs. You allowed us to provide more services than ever. You propelled our research teams forward. You came to our anniversary gala. You wrote a check and/or made a pledge to support what we do. 

In short, our success is due to you. And we are very grateful. Here's wishing you and your loved ones a very Merry Christmas and a safe, happy and heart-healthy New Year.

With respect and gratitude,

Celebrating 50 Years of ExcellenceSignature
