Local restaurant owner is helping make cardiac care more comfortable

Pizzeria Defina is doing more for this community than offering a great lunch or dinner option. A big thank you to local business owner Adrian Ruzycky who is giving back to our community by helping neighbours with heart issues receive better, more comfortable care.

New Echocardiography Beds for St. Joe’s

Family, friends and neighbours joined Adrian in raising more than $24,000 to purchase two echocardiography beds for St. Joe’s. The new beds make lengthy procedures more comfortable for patients and include special features that allow the sonographer to easily reach the patient from all sides to take better images of the heart.

Adrian’s gift celebrates the life of his son Luka Ruzycky, who passed away at the age of 18 due to a heart-related condition.
