Teen Lives Without Heart

This is an amazing story on how far medical technology has taken us. A fourteen year old girl with an enlarged heart had to have a heart transplant, but it was inefficient, so after the doctors removed donor heart, they fashioned a heart pump to keep her alive for the next four months until her next transplant. D'Zhana is doing well with her new heart and she'll be turning 15 on Saturday- a birthday I am sure her parents wondered if she would see.
