Stories: Scott

Attitude is everything

That’s the mantra that got Scott through his open-heart surgery. When his irregular heartbeat wouldn’t go away, Scott turned to Swedish for help. After a series of tests, he soon learned he had a hole in his heart and that it needed to be repaired.

As his surgery approached, Scott was faced with fear and anxiety. He credits his nurses for being patient and letting him take off his brave face. “They helped me get through those times when I didn’t know how to get through myself,” Scott says.

It’s this kind of extraordinary caring that you make possible with your support. Today, Scott is stronger than ever thanks to the generosity of our community.
