A Teen Survives Without a Heart

14-year-old D'Zhana Simmons suffered from a weak and enlarged heart, requiring a transplant. Sadly, the donor heart didn't take, and had to be removed. This meant that for nearly four months, Simmons' blood was pumped not by an organ, but by two artificial blood pumps. The experience was harrowing, but she survived and received a second, successful heart transplant after 118 days with no heart.

Uh, that has everything to do with the artificial pump. Without that highly technological device she would absolutely be dead.

Amazing story; the human body is such a remarkable, finely tuned piece of kit. The survival instinct is so strong.
