Our STARS Patients
It doesn’t matter who you are. It doesn’t matter where you are. If you need critical care, our mission is to be there for you in whatever capacity we can help. Every one of our VIPs — Very Important Patients — has a unique story of how STARS was their best hope in a worst-case scenario. We are honoured to share some of their inspirational stories here.
If you are one of our VIPs and would like to meet your crew or share your story, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
