About Rolland

After facing over three decades of heart issues, including a heart by-pass surgery in 1998, Rolland Kegley was diagnosed with heart failure in 2016. In March of 2017, he underwent LVAD surgery which placed a pump in the left side of his heart in hopes of sustaining him until a heart transplant could become available. Over the last 3.5 years, Rolland has been working diligently, with his wife Peggy always by his side, to be placed on a transplant list. Most recently, Rolland has been working closely with Vanderbilt University Hospital and in September 2020, he was approved for both a heart and kidney transplant through their program.
