Father & Son: Team of Two Hearts
Monday, July 16, 2012
Jerry Smigelski, Jr. and his dad have many things in common, like most parents and their children. However, one of their connections is more unusual than most: both men are heart transplant recipients. Jerry's father had a heart transplant 15 years ago at the University of Michigan. Jerry followed suit, receiving his new heart at Duke University Hospital on October 4, 2010. Now, both Jerry and his father will be competing in their first Transplant Games of America 2012 in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
