As you all may have heard, I recently underwent a procedure on my heart for a medical condition called PFO (Patent Formen Ovale) at the Texas Heart Institute at St. Luke's Hospital here in Houston. Everything went well, and I'm thrilled to be back at work! I can't explain how grateful I am for all the amazing health care professionals at St. Luke's Hospital, the Texas Heart Institute, and all the kind words of support and prayers that I have received from the Houston community.
At the beginning of this year, my wife Linda and I were able to donate $2.1 million to the Texas Heart Institute, in order to bring the incredible Australian inventor, Daniel Timms, and his research team to Houston, Texas. It is right here in Houston that they have tirelessly been working on bringing to fruition the idea of the first completely artificial heart. Heart health is something that I am very passionate about. I'm honored to be able to be part of backing research in this field.
