About Patchwork Heart (From Their Website)
People on occasion ask us why we named our ministry Patchwork Heart. The answer is simply this, our founder Bill Snyder is a survivor of three open-heart surgeries. He was diagnosed at three weeks of age with Tetrology of Fallot a serious congenital heart defect that required immediate surgery to correct the problem, and two additional open-heart surgeries to make necessary modifications and improve heart function. As part of the procedures, many different patches have been sewn into his heart thus giving him a “patchwork heart” and a name to our ministry. Bill, a passionate Catholic, loves to openly share his story of how the numerous surgeries and medical procedures have helped him grow in faith because he believes and hopes that it will open many hearts to God’s grace and love.
