Teen Once Denied New Heart, Gets Transplant

Andy Stokes, a Black teenager denied a spot on the heart transplant list from an Atlanta hospital, has finally gotten a new heart. His mother said he is “resting and doing fine,” ABC reports. Doctors reversed their decision on Aug. 13 after media got wind he was kicked off for having “bad grades” and having issues with the law.
