Summary:

It was two years ago today that I had a heart attack. It was thanks to folks at UCSF I am still here. And now I want you to join me in helping raise funds for this esteemed hospital. My target — $50,000 in 2010.

It was two years ago that I had a heart attack, an event that changed my life. Had it not been for the timely intervention of some friends and some amazing medical professionals including my cardiologist, J. Eduardo Rame (who has since moved to U. Penn) at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Heart & Vascular Center, I wouldn’t be around today. Perhaps that’s why I deeply appreciate the value of their efforts.

UCSF, like many of our esteemed institutions, needs our support, and I was hoping that you would join me in helping raise funds for the hospital. My target is pretty modest: Help them raise $50,000 in 2010.

Make the check to: UCSF Foundation. In the notes area of the check, write “OM/Cardiovascular Research Initiative.”

Mail the check to: UCSF Foundation, UCSF Box 0248, San Francisco, CA 94143-0248. ATTN: Kevin McAteer, Director of Development

If you have time, please take a moment and learn more about heart and vascular diseases, how to prevent them, and how to figure out if you have a problem. Visit the UCSF web site.

  2. Hey Om,
    Just to show you we’re all in this together … I am sending in my own check for this cause. It ain’t a big one, but I know that every little bit goes a long way at UCSF. Thanks for always being a champion.
