Om Malik, founder of Gigaom, has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise money for the Cardiology department at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF) Department of Medicine. In 2008, Om suffered a heart attack and credits the team at UCSF for helping him to save his own life.
These past six years have added up to what could be the best years of my life – for now. And I will forever be grateful to the UCSF cardiology team. They saved me from near disaster and gave me a chance to rewrite my life story. Now it’s my turn to give back to the team that gave so much to me. My goal is to raise $25,000 to help fund various heart disease-related projects at UCSF, and I would really appreciate your support.
