Major Milestone

Posted: Updated:

It is quite an anniversary for an Erie man. He is celebrating his heart transplant surgery, 25 years ago this month, in June 1988.

Seventy-seven year old Steve Cash and his wife Helen are thrilled to share the major milestone.

 The surgery saved Steve's life. And allowed him to share a quarter century of birthdays, holidays, and anniversaries with Helen, their 5 daughters, 6 grandchildren and one great grandchild. He says many other people can share his story if the number of organ donors increases.

 Cash said, "I'd like people to understand that organ donations do work. There are so many people that need those organs. If they only signed a donor card it would help those people as it helped us."

The retired GE supervisor was on a waiting list for nearly a year before the life saving surgery.
