The actual transplant procedure for your child is one of the most exciting and scary things a parent will ever have to go through. Because so many other organizations have done a wonderful job of providing information in this area, we will provide links to those sites. We are also hoping to provide family accounts of their own experiences with transplant that may help you relate to the experience you are about to have with your child.
If you are curious about how the actual procedure is done, the people of NOVA put together an amazing online animated interactive heart "transplant" that you can run through yourself. http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/nova/eheart/transplant.html
