In June 2014, Oliver Keene from Mandarin was born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, a severe defect in which the structures of the left side of the heart are underdeveloped. After making it through his first corrective surgery six days after birth, Oliver’s condition failed to improve due to a leaky tricuspid valve, which was part of his heart defect. An investigative heart catheterization performed by his pediatric cardiologist at the UF Health Pediatric Cardiovascular Center at Wolfson Children’s revealed that Oliver’s best chance at survival would be a heart transplant, and thanks to the generosity of a donor family, he received one in January 2015 at UF Health in Gainesville. Today, little Oliver is nearing his second birthday with a strong new heart, and a second chance at life. Read Oliver’s story here.
