Heart and double-lung transplant recipient sharing his story to inspire others
At 17 years old, Cooper Pierce received a double-lung and heart transplant. Now, he is 19 and gearing up for his sophomore year at UAB. Early on, Pierce noticed his heart beating irregularly. Up until he was 13, he accredited his breathing problems to asthma, a misdiagnosis. Pierce said his family then took him for a checkup where the doctor immediately noticed something was wrong.
