Video Shows Emotional Moment Teen Realizes He’s Alive After Heart Transplant.

In February of 2015, 15-year-old Trevor Sullivan was diagnosed with a very serious disease.

The disease, severe Cardiomyopathy, is the measurable deterioration for any reason of the ability of the the heart muscle to contract, usually leading to heart failure..

And this boy from Detroit, Michigan, couldn’t have been stronger. He decided to undergo surgery on Nov. 13, 2015. The surgery isn’t easy, however, so of course Trevor and his family were very worried.

In fact, we can see by this video that Trevor wasn’t confident that he would even survive. That’s because when he woke up from the operation the first thing this strong boy said was that he was “so happy.” He’s finally realizing that he’s alive!

It wasn’t until two months after the surgery that Trevor’s dad, Philip, shared this footage following the surgery… Trevor had asked his mom Kimberly to document the first few moment of coming-to when the anesthesia wore off.

Of the video, Trevor told ABC News, “I really like the video, actually, I think it’s really cool and I wish everyone in the world can see it because it really makes a difference. It promotes organ donation and people can see the outcome of it and how happy they really are.”

Share Trevor’s wonderful story of strength and gratefulness to remind those around you to enjoy life to the fullest!
