Alice Santos had been feeling tired for a while. Then, one day at work she was having so much trouble breathing that somebody had to call 9-1-1. She needed heart surgery, but she had already had one heart surgery and didn't want to have another one.

Santos' success was made possible, in part, because of philanthropists like Maurice Kanbar, for whom the cardiac center is named.
