KMBC 9: 10-year-old boy gets heart transplant at Children's Mercy
By Alan Shope
A 10-year-old boy has a new lease on life after receiving a new heart.
"He had a heart condition called hypertrophic cardiomyopathy," said Ingrid Malsam.
At just 4 months old, Garrett Malsam's family knew that at some point he was probably going to have to have a heart transplant.
In September, doctors told the family that Garrett needed a new heart.
On Thanksgiving Day, Garrett received a new heart, making him the 31st child to get a heart transplant at Children's Mercy.
