Second Chance for Life


In the course of the run of The Tin Woman at Peninsula Players, we were pleased to have two actual heart transplant recipients attend the show.  Joel Heckman, the vice president of “Second Chance for Life” and his wife, Sue, as well as Ken McIntosh and his wife, Fran, were very enthusiastic about the performance. Joel and Ken, the recipients, then agreed to do a short pre-show program about the experience of receiving their “second chance”.  Audiences got to hear first-hand about the process, challenges and personal stories of these two courageous families.  Several people mentioned that their awareness of donation opportunities was raised and that they were going to “sign those donor cards!”  Anyone interested in learning more can go to “Second Chance for Life”.
