Harrison Black

In fall of 2001, Harrison Black struggled to breathe, lost weight and felt miserable. Doctors told him that a virus had damaged his heart and he would need a heart transplant. After 11 months of rehab, Black went on the heart transplant waiting list. Just two weeks later, he was on the operating table at Barnes-Jewish Hospital, getting his donor heart. Today, Black is stronger than ever, thanks to his heart transplant.
