Teen continues to recover from heart transplant surgery

Posted: Updated:

The DeKalb County teenager who was initially kept off a heart transplant wait list is recovering after undergoing the life-saving surgery last month, his mother said.

Doctors for Anthony Stokes say there are no signs that 15-year-old Anthony Stokes' body rejected the transplanted heart.

His mom shared a photo of the teen as he recovers at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.  She also wanted to express her gratitude for all of the prayers and support for her son.
