Patient Stories

Arrhythmia Stopped her Heart

Brynn Taylor was born with a rare, life-threatening heart defect. Weighing just 2 pounds at birth, Brynn would need to wait until she weighed 5 pounds to have open-heart surgery at UR Medicine's Golisano Children's Hospital.

Near Death More Than a Thousand Times

Strong Memorial Hospital is the only hospital in Upstate New York that performs Heart Transplants.

After a diagnostic test reveals that he has been near death more than a thousand times, Mike Froome is put on the waiting list for a heart transplant. This film reveals what it’s like to wait for a heart—and then to finally hear that your new heart is on its way.

Kris's Story

Kris won an Olympic Gold Medal in 1984 in Women's Rowing, becoming the first Alaskan to ever win an Olympic medal. About 20 years later, at the age of 47, she suffered a heart attack. Kris was treated at Thompson Hospital in Canandaigua, and was then transferred to Strong Memorial Hospital for more extensive care. She then returned to Thompson for cardiac rehab. Kris has now returned to an active life of rowing and, at age 50, took up a new sport: ice hockey.
