Grady McMillan

Epstein Anomaly with Atrial Septal Defect

When Grady McMillan was born on December 31, 2014, he appeared to be perfectly healthy. But at his one-month checkup, his pediatrician heard what sounded like a heart murmur and referred Grady and his parents, Tara and Jody, to a cardiologist.

Grady's Story

Morgan Price

Dilated Cardiomyopathy, Heart Transplant

Morgan was born on July 7, 2014 with high bilirubin levels and jaundice. Then, just two weeks after Morgan’s birth, Morgan’s mother and Dorothy’s daughter, Arica, called 911 in a panic, telling emergency responders that Morgan was choking and seizing. A chest X-ray revealed Morgan had an enlarged heart.
