Northwestern Ontario Cardiology Summit 2015March 17, 2015 Three years ago, Bronwyn Huffman was an active 14-year-old who enjoyed curling and highland dancing. That was before she was diagnosed with pediatric acute myeloid leukemia (AML) on January 15, 2012 and airlifted to the Children’s Hospital in London, Ontario. Four months later, she suffered heart failure as a result of the chemotherapy and was rushed to the Hospital for Sick Children (Sick Kids) in Toronto. Bronwyn required a Left Ventricular Assist Device be implanted to help propel blood throughout her body. For two years, she lived with the implanted device, waiting in Toronto to receive a new heart. On April 9, 2014 she received a life-altering heart transplant and has since returned to Thunder Bay.read more about 'Northwestern Ontario Cardiology Summit 2015'
