Thoracic surgeon Dr. Perry Cardium has made a fortune both through his medical practice and through publication of his best seller, Mending a Broken Heart—Repairing Torn Aortic Valves in Recently Divorced Individuals. He’s decided he wants to share his good fortune with the public by making a major philanthropic gift. 

He particularly wants to benefit the world-renowned Museum of Modern Hearts. In particular, he wants to provide funds to the Museum to build a new wing that will house his collection of rare surgical tools, including machines that can install ventricular stents with no human intervention.
