THANKFUL FOR EVERYDAY SHE HAS BEEN GIVEN
In December 2014, Brandi had a case of strep throat which resulted in the diagnosis of dilated cardiomyopathy. Unable to tolerate any of the medications to treat it, she was told that ultimately a heart transplant would be needed to save her life.
When her insurance denied her a transplant in Austin, Texas, Brandi decided to move to Oklahoma to be closer to her family. Her health began to decline daily, and she spent nearly a month in the Intensive Care Unit before she received a new heart.
Brandi’s life was saved by a selfless donor, and because of his gift, she is able to live her life to the fullest. Brandi is able to exercise, travel and enjoy time with her friends and family. She has had the opportunity to meet the family of the man who saved her life.
