John’s story

One grateful patient turned donor is John Skogstad. What started as a simple operation turned into triple bypass surgery for John, who didn’t realize he’d had a heart attack.

“I was completely unaware that anything was wrong. Going in that day probably saved me. Thankfully I came through it alive.”

Today, John visits us nearly every month to make his gift in person. “I liked it here when I was a patient, and I see the good work that the hospital is doing now.”

The generosity of people like John ensures St. Michael’s will continue to provide the best possible care. Every gift brings us a step closer to fulfilling our funding priorities.
