Paper: Massachusetts School shows love for teacher who received new heart

Nashoba Regional High School social studies teacher Mike Poirier had heart issues starting in 2017 and has been on a waiting list for a new heart since before the COVID pandemic hit.

They moved him up the list in late spring and he got his new heart on June 1, reported the The Item.

“I feel better each day, walking more, breathing better, not quite as overwhelmed at times, looking forward to a summer to rest, rehab and relax in order to get back to normal,” Poirier told Item reporter Jan Gottesman.
