« If I have questions or a health problem, I know that I will be quickly supported by a team of experts. »
The Montreal Heart Institute is synonymous with peace of mind and absolute trust for Justine. She had surgery at another centre at the age of four due to a heart murmur and an atrial septal defect (ASD), and has been closely monitored by a cardiologist at the Montreal Heart Institute since she was 18 years old. If she has questions or a health problem, she knows that she will be quickly supported by a team of experts. As a participant in the Institute’s Biobank project, she is now undergoing tests that will explore the link between genetics and her heart condition. This will help her better understand her illness, and allow her to take part in research to determine if her condition is hereditary.
Justine is a proud member of the Emerging Leaders Committee of the Montreal Heart Institute Foundation, where she has been able to meet other generous young philanthropists and raise awareness among her community about the risks of cardiovascular disease.
