HEARTest Yard: Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen gives sizeable gift to Levine Children’s Hospital to help pediatric heart patients

Good Samaritan: Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen stopped to help the victims of a car wreck Monday afternoon in Charlotte.   www.charlotteobserver.com/2013/07/22/4182210/carolina-panthers-greg-olsen-stops.html

FYI: Last month, Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen presented Carolinas Healthcare System’s Levine Children’s Hospital a gift of more than $289,000 to help support the launch of the HEARTest Yard, a program which will help provide home care support for pediatric heart patients once they are discharged from the Hospital.  **Olsen’s son T.J. was born in October 2012 with hypoplastic left heart syndrome (HLHS), a serious and often fatal heart defect. T.J. underwent the first of three surgeries at Levine Children’s Hospital days after being born. After going home from the hospital, the Olsen family soon discovered the need, as well as the benefit, of having in-home nursing care for their fragile son. www.carolinashealthcare.org/body.cfm?id=14&action=detail&ref=705
