Gail Morrell has known that her heart was failing since 1998. For years, she managed the condition without any serious problems, until she suffered a heart attack in 2014. She was given little to no hope, until she was sent to UF Health.
Here, Gail found a team of problem solvers led by Dr. Thomas Beaver, a heart surgeon and chief of thoracic and cardiovascular surgery, and Dr. Juan Aranda, a cardiologist and heart failure specialist. They knew that Gail’s heart was failing, but she wasn’t a candidate for a transplant.
