Caleb was born with a congenital heart defect and underwent his first open-heart surgery at Monroe Carell Jr. Children’s Hospital at Vanderbilt when he was only a week old. After Caleb faced more surgeries, seizures, and a stroke, doctors discovered that he was in heart failure and would need a heart transplant to survive.
He spent months in the hospital until he received a donor heart. Today, Caleb is 7 years old. He loves cheering on the Nashville Predators and keeping in touch with the friends he made at Children’s Hospital.
