A glimmer of hope after Philasande Dladla receives a heart transplant

11 November 2016 8:48 AM

Life has changed for the better now that he has a chance at living a fully functional life.

Philasande Dladla (10) has finally received a successful heart transplant after a two-year wait living in hope of a miracle heart transplant.

His mom, Cindy Dladla, expressed her gratitude after the 10-year-old boy's uncle contacted Talk Radio 702 pleading for help to cover his R2 million hospital bill.

I'm happy to report that Philasande is well, happy, running around. He got his heart in May.

Philansande is the first child to receive a heart transplant in Africa. She revered the service and assistance of medical staff at Christian Barnard Hospital in Cape Town.

Listen to Philansande's story below:

We found an amazing team of doctors and nurses there, the hospitality was amazing. The doctors were good, they explained and every procedure on him."
