“You’re Going To Live!” 14-Year-Old Gets Miraculous Heart Transplant
Albert Jeffries, who goes by Al-J, was only 4 months old when doctors diagnosed him with cardiomyopathy, a heart condition that, according to doctors, meant he wasn’t going to make it.
“His heart was barely squeezing,” Albert’s mom, Tina Turner, told Fox 8 in December. “That was the beginning of our journey. The doctor said he wasn’t going to make it overnight. I was like—I know that there’s a God. He’s going to make it.“
Cardiomyopathy refers to diseases of the heart muscle. These diseases have many causes, signs and symptoms, and treatments.
