The 2019 CRMC Volunteer of the Year is Kenny Palone, who began volunteering at CRMC in 2016 after working for Union Pacific Railroad as an Engineer for 38 years. Palone says after his heart attack he felt so thankful for Dr. Gillis, Dr. Mehrle, and CRMC, they saved his life. He felt like he really needed to do something to show his appreciation and maybe help someone else.
