Connie Fail is an RN with over 30 years of cardiac surgical ICU experience at Massachusetts General Hospital, Boston. Connie has been a member of Team Heart since 2009, stepping out of her comfort zone of a high tech, academic medical center ICU to volunteer her time as an ICU nurse with Team Heart in Rwanda. The people of Rwanda found a place in her heart, and Connie has returned every year since to lead the nursing team.
She is the mother of 3 beautiful daughters and credits her husband Rick and her family for supporting her through all her endeavors with Team Heart. Connie believes healthcare is a human right, and it is up to each of us to not only believe in it, but to work to make it a reality. Team Heart has given her that chance.
