Bryce Daniel Milnick Receiving New Heart

Sponsored by:

Stanford University Medical Center, CA — Former Sonora residents Danny and Erin Milnick are calling it an incredible blessing; a heart has been located for their son Bryce.

The infant was born in November with a hypoplastic left heart syndrome birth defect. Doctors at the Stanford Medical Center told his parents that he would need a new heart.

This morning at two o´clock, Bryce´s parents received a call from one of the members of the heart transplant team working on Bryce´s case stating that a heart had been located and surgery had already been scheduled for noon today.

Over the past couple of weeks, more than 150 donors have joined in the Delta Blood Bank´s blood restoration drive to help defray the family´s medical costs.

Danny and Erin Milnick now make their home in Merced.
