Pediatric Transplant Survivor – Sam Long

Heart Failure Awareness Week – Tuesday

During Heart Failure Awareness Week, we are reminded that we have fellow HeartBrothers throughout this country–and that age knows no boundary. Some are a mere 14 years old when they join our heart failure family. But our support doesn’t end at transplant. Heart Failure is a long journey. We want to share our HeartBrother Sam’s story to inspire others, as he has inspired us.

Below is the letter we received from Sam’s mother Cynthia after his transplant. (Thank you, Cynthia for your kind words.) Also below is the local Cape Cod news story announcing his transplant.
