Evan Schneider – All-Around Athlete
My new heart makes every goal possible.
Whether he's dribbling the ball past a defender or skiing down the slopes, Evan has a passion for life that many find inspiring. But while he was still in the womb, doctors noticed Evan had a rare heart defect that would cut his life short. His parents went to Loma Linda University Children's Hospital where just weeks after he was born, Evan received a brand new heart. 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 kids like Evan the chance to live life to its fullest.
