Back to School 2016: Michael's Story
Wednesday, September 28, 2016
In February of 2014, at age 16, I went into the hospital after being sick for about a week and not getting better. I learned that I had a virus that had attacked my heart and that my heart had been damaged by the virus. I was at UNC Chapel Hill for two months and during that time there were a lot of ups and downs. The doctors had decided that the best option for me was to have a heart transplant. I received my new heart on April 15, 2014; and I have been doing great!
