"I wanted to take the time today to share how incredibly grateful I am to be with my Dad this year. This picture was taken 1 year ago on Father’s Day and 110 days on his Total Artificial Heart. One week after this picture was taken, I received the miraculous call that my Dad had found a perfect match for a heart transplant." ---Jeanne Hwang

While running his second 5k a few weeks ago, Total Artificial Heart recipient Johnny Lemucchi met fellow heart transplant recipient and former Major League Baseball player Rod Carew. Johnny is currently training for the 2018 Transplant Olympics, riding 125 miles a week and walking/running 7 to 10 miles a day! Johnny says his motivation is his donor's family, who recently accepted his letter and whom he hopes to meet one day.
