“Tanya is currently working with a young man in the Phase II Cardiac Rehab program who recently underwent a serious heart surgery. This young man’s main goal is to get back to playing hockey and ice skating (a sport and activity he truly loves). Knowing and understanding how important this goal is to the young man, Tanya reach out to the manager at Peak Performance to get this young man on the Blade Skating Treadmill. By coordinating efforts through these departments, Tanya was able to make this a reality. Tanya agreed to bring monitoring equipment and monitor the young man the entire time on the treadmill.
In October 2016, Tanya and the manager at Peak made this young man’s dream come true. With his mom present, the young man made his skating debut (first time in five years). Many joyful tears were shed by mom watching her son do an activity he loves in a safe and monitored environment. The mom said, ‘our hearts are full of gratitude!'” It was an amazing moment for all involved.”
Tanya was honored with a surprise celebration at the HEART Center in front of her leader, peers and patients.
