Patient gets a look at her old heart following transplant

Filed under: ,

After a transplant earlier this year, a young British woman gave her heart away...literally. After doctors removed her heart -- damaged by a condition called restrictive cardiomyopathy -- Jennifer Sutton, 23, lent it to the Wellness Collection of central London. It will be on display to help educate the public on the importance of donor organs. Jennifer recently got to see her heart and described the moment as "surreal." I can only imagine. Read more about Jennifer's story and see a picture of her (and her heart!) at BBC News.
