Carrera Nuhaily – Beautiful baby girl
My daughter is precious. So is her new heart
These days, Carrera enjoys playtime with her favorite purple dinosaur, Barney. But less than a year ago, she was struggling to live. While visiting family at another hospital, Carrera began to turn an alarming shade of gray. She was life-flighted to Loma Linda University Children’s Hospital, where doctors worked tirelessly to get her the heart she needed to survive. Twenty-five years ago, our heart team, led by Dr. Leonard Bailey, became the first in the world to perform infant heart transplants. Today, we’re still giving little ones like Carrera a second chance at life.
