There was a woman from Barrie Ontario, who was quite a cause celebre in 2010. She was air-lifted from there and had her procedure done in New York state. The was probably the largest e-mail campaign that at the time had ever happened, preceding it, happening on at least two continents. I'm not sure if there was any e-mail from Australia. TiMS and Facebook were to blame. (anybody know if this preceded the Arab Spring?). During her procedure, she was diagnosed and treated (stent, I believe)
How she is doing now, I don't know. Her family credited it with saving her life, which was forfeit if she needed unusual rescue, as she had signed a Do Not Resuscitate order. Anybody know how Barb Farrel is?
We still don't really know where she had it done. Three facilities could have done it, but wasn't there only one in operation? I can't remember. It was paid for by an anonymous benefactor.
