Upset Tummy?

This PDF article speaks to the importance of keeping your doctor informed about stomach upset problems and managing side effects of transplant medications.

    Personal Stories

    A Change Of Heart

    On Easter Sunday, March 31, 1991, I had a change of heart – literally!  On that date I was the joyful recipient of a heart transplant.  A procedure that had become almost routine to the medical profession was an answer to prayer to me in the form of a 20th century miracle.
