“Do you remember? The 21st night of September…”

I do, and so do my family members and friends, because I got ‘The Call’ on that day. My heart transplant surgery started Sept 21, 2016 and ended after 10 hours of surgery on the 22nd. My donor heart went in on the 22nd. I will celebrate my 3rd re-birthday on September 22nd, 2019!

After 4 years, including 2 open heart surgeries, I have decided to leave Temple University Hospital Advanced Heart and Transplant center and change to Thomas Jefferson's Transplant Center.

It was not an easy decision, especially since I credit Temple for keeping me alive. However, 4 out of 5 of my doctors have moved on and I thought it was time to make a change as well. I had the opportunity to follow one of my doctors and I started the process earlier this month.

I am grateful for all that Temple did for me and I am looking forward to moving forward in my transplant journey with Jefferson.
