Support Group Liaison
Steve has been a member and current president of the Caboolture Peer Support Group since 2008 after he had his first heart event. Since then he has become very knowledgeable about the benefits of peer support for heart patients and their families. He is well known in the Ukrainian community and has a strong background in voluntary work having served with the Volunteer Fire and Rescue, St John Ambulance Service as a Superintendent, funding member of the Tom Price Sub Branch and many other organisations.
Since having his first heart attack in 2007 and a double bypass (CABG) he has been a keen advocate of Heart Support Australia by returning the support and good will he received during his recovery. This was extended when he was laid low with throat cancer in 2012-13 which led to early retirement from my normal working employment and reduced his volunteering duties.
