Silas Huffman: 2 Years after Receiving New Heart

On Tuesday, a little boy from Stockbridge celebrated a very special anniversary. It was exactly two years ago that Silas Huffman received a new heart. 

The FOX Medical Team's Beth Galvin followed the then 7-month-old baby's journey as his family prayed and waited on a heart. Tuesday night, Beth shared the a touching message on Facebook in honor of Silas' big day:

Two years ago tonight, Silas Huffman received a new heart. He was 7 months old and very sick.

Silas had been in Children's Healthcare of Atlanta for 101 days and had been placed on a Berlin heart pump to try to shore up his failing one. No one wanted to say it, but time was running out.

His parents, Chris and Amanda, allowed my photographer Eli and me to be there and to tell the story of that day. It was one of the most powerful experiences of my life.
