“How did you feel at such a young age to have such a big sickness?”
When Elizabeth Chatelain first took her teenaged daughter Christy Jourdain to the hospital, she thought Christy was suffering from an asthma attack. But Christy was diagnosed with congestive heart failure and went on to receive a heart transplant. Mother and daughter recorded for Storycorps Legacy as they prepared to take Christy back home from the hospital with a brand new heart.
