Heart Transplant Recipient Ran Marathon

An AGH (Allegheny General Hospital) Heart Transplant ran the Pittsburgh Marathon last Sunday. I thought about him today and I went back tonight and found his photograph. I took it just before Mile 20.

Absolutely incredible, isn’t it?

Wishing him all the best!

According to the article below from WTAE he had the transplant just 17 months ago

  1. As a family, we are aware of the miracle of transplantation. This gentleman and his accomplishments are a testament to the wonders of medicine that we have witnessed personally. One message…become an organ donor…many people are waiting anxiously for this same opportunity.
