WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — A five-month-old Wilmington girl has the new heart she’s been waiting for. Hannah Dombrowski received a heart transplant Friday night after waiting since February, when doctors found an inoperable tumor on her heart.
Hannah’s parents say she is doing really well and is showing signs of breathing on her own this afternoon. They say Hannah is continuing to fight for her life, and they could not thank the community enough for their support.
Fundraisers for Hannah will continue this weekend to help her family cover the medical costs that go along with her long hospital stays, transplant and all the medication she may need now that her body is adapting to a new organ.
