Weekend Video: Penny’s Heart

December 11, 2010


This weekend’s video is a heartwarming documentary about a little girl Penny who received a heart transplant on March 31, 2010. Penelope Gorman or Penny as people call her lovingly,  is a beautiful and charming little girl who developed heart complications at the age of 2. Her heart was enlarged and doctors diagnosed her with Dilated Cardiomyopathy. When all medications failed, doctors had no other options left but to attach an external device called Berlin Heart from outside which would assist her heart in pumping. She was kept on heart transplant list and then onwards the family kept waiting for the call that would tell them they got a heart available for their daughter. Watch the documentary to know more about the story.

Penny is healthy now with her new heart but then again there is always a risk of body rejecting the new heart. But the good news is that she is progressing well and we hope for the best.
