Heart transplants are one of the more serious medical procedures in the world. Sixteen-year-old Amari Hall recently had a heart transplant.
“Through all of his rough times and medical challenges, he somehow seems to continue to bring positive energy in the room [and pass] those positives vibes on to others,” his aunt Charawn Hunter explained.
Amari was born with a congenital heart defect, known as hypoplastic left heart syndrome, or HLHS.
The CDC defines HLHS as “a birth defect that affects normal blood flow through the heart. As the baby develops during pregnancy, the left side of the heart does not form correctly. In babies with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, the left side of the heart cannot pump oxygen-rich blood to the body properly.”
Amari found himself in need of a new heart before it was too late.
He waited months on the donor list at the University of Maryland Medical Center until he finally received a new one.
After his heart transplant surgery was successfully completed, Amari, still strapped to his hospital bed, decided to dance to celebrate!
Even the hospital staff joined in!
“Amari is truly a heart-warrior who has never given up on life,” his aunt said.
