Heart patient Tiernee Gonzalez, 20, a childhood cancer survivor, has had heart problems ever since she went through chemo as a child. She had her first heart transplant at 12 and now lives with an artificial heart while she waits for another heart transplant. She carries her heart in a backpack. But she never goes anywhere alone. Friends, such as Child Life Specialists who work with her through the Josh Cares program at Cincinnati Children's, are always there to lend support.
