“I first learned about this organization when I met David Verge a few years ago,” Town Supervisor Feiner tells BW. “He’s a member of the Transplant Support Group and a member of our new Health Care Advisory Committee. He was waiting for a heart transplant–and had a portable heart attached to outside his body. It was raining outside when I first met him and he was worried about the risks of going outside with a portable heart when it was raining! He resides in Hartsdale and looks 100 years younger today than he looked when he was waiting for the transplant.”
