Air ambulance makes a difference

My family really enjoyed your article in yesterday’s Progress (Air ambulance saving lives in the Fraser Valley).

My family really enjoyed your article in yesterday’s Progress  (Air ambulance saving lives in the Fraser Valley). My dad, John Vandegraaf who lives in Chilliwack, suffered a major heart attack on Canada Day and was rushed via helicopter to RCH. He received angioplasty and 4 stents within 2.5 hours of having his heart attack.   And because of this, minimal damage was done to the muscle in his heart. I would like to compliment everyone involved, as the ambulance attendants also arrived within 10 minutes of my mom calling 911. He had a second procedure on Wednesday with two more stents and was able to go home yesterday.  You can add number seven to the list of people to whom owe their lives to this new great program.  Thank you a million times!
