At just 2 years old, Malia Sanchez, a patient at Children’s Hospital in New Orleans, LA, was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy. When her heart did not respond to previous treatments, doctors implanted a Berlin Heart device with hopes that she could receive a heart transplant. Pediatric heart transplants are not offered in Louisiana, so Malia was referred to Arkansas Children’s Hospital for treatment.
