Heart Transplant Patient Stories

Elizabeth: Heart Transplant Recipient

Elizabeth, a third grade teacher in Philadelphia, discusses how welcoming and helpful the heart transplant team was in walking her through the transplant process and the significant health improvements she's experienced as a result of her heart transplant.

The video was filmed at the annual Dash for Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness, a run/walk that Elizabeth participated in to honor organ and tissue donors, celebrate organ and tissue recipients and recognize those who continue to wait for a life-saving transplant.
