Michelle H., born 1985. The young woman from the canton of Aargau received a heart transplant in 2012.
“Michelle H. came into the world with a heart defect. For years she led a normal life with the help of medication. Because she and her partner wanted to have children, her medication was altered. But she suffered such a severe reaction to the new medication that she received a heart transplant in 2012. Today, she is perfectly healthy and maintains anonymous contact with the donor’s family. She calls her donor ‘my guardian angel’”.
