HENRY WEATHERS, HEART RECIPIENT
Our son, Henry, came into the world with an underdeveloped heart and had his first open heart surgery at four weeks old. Other surgeries followed and bought our child some time to grow and develop, but at the age of five his health deteriorated quickly and he was put on the transplant waiting list. Just 24 days later, we got the call that a heart was available for Henry. It came from a three-year-old boy whose family was grieving just as our hopes were soaring. We understand that we can never say ‘thank you’ enough to Henry’s donor family but we begin each day grateful to them. Thanks to them, Henry has traveled all over the US and overseas, serves on student council and is a LifeShare volunteer. Another family’s tremendous gift gave us our son back.
