TORONTO, Ont. — Canadian International Freight Forwarders Executive Director George Kuhn is recovering in hospital after suffered a heart seizure at a recent dinner in Toronto.

Kuhn’s colleagues at CIFFA say he is feeling much better and is up and about in hospital eager to get home and back to work. They say they have passed on to George all the calls and e-mail and get well cards and he is very thankful for all the attention and good wishes.

In lieu of flowers or fruit baskets George has asked donations be made to your favorite charity. Acknowledgement cards should be sent to George Kuhn, c/o CIFFA, 1243 Islington Ave., Suite 706, Toronto, Ont. M8X 1Y9.

Kuhn has tentatively been scheduled for surgery on May 2 to implant a heart defibrillator at the Toronto General Hospital. He will continue to stay at the Credit Valley Hospital until the weekend, at which time he will be transferred to Toronto General.

His friends and colleagues expect George to make a full recovery and hope to see him back in the office in the near future.
