A pediatric heart transplant recipient
At two years old, Eliza is curious and on the go! When she was 6 months old, she received her heart transplant. During an urgent trip to the ER as a newborn, doctors discovered her enlarged heart. After many tests, many decisions, and varied emotions, Eliza’s parents made the decision to add her to the heart transplant list. When they received the call that a heart was available for Eliza, they also knew another family was mourning the loss of their loved one. Grateful and humbled by the generosity of the donor family, Eliza received her new heart the day before Mother’s Day on May 12, 2018. Today, she is eagerly awaiting the arrival of her little brother.
