Tn Heart Transplant Recipient’S Remarkable Second Chance: A Journey Of Renewed Life

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Clemmie Greenlee, a heart transplant survivor, is sharing her story of near-death and second chance at life. In late 2017, Greenlee began experiencing extreme fatigue, which became even more apparent when she fainted and became weak while speaking at the San Quentin prison. Concerned about her health, she visited her doctor at Ascension St. Thomas, who informed her that her levels were dangerously low and she had only two months to live. Doctors diagnosed her with broken heart syndrome, and she was admitted to the hospital, where she awaited a heart transplant. After months of waiting, a donor heart was finally found on May 17th. Greenlee underwent successful surgery and has since made a remarkable recovery. She has now dedicated her life to advocating against human trafficking and gun violence.

Greenlee’s journey serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of organ donation and the incredible impact it can have on someone’s life. Her determination and positive attitude have played a vital role in her recovery and her commitment to giving back to her community. Although Greenlee may never have the chance to meet her heart donor, she is grateful for the second chance at life that she has been given.
