Rhys' story

Rhys

Rhys, a heart transplant patient, is representing Great Britain at the World Transplant Games.

Eleven-year-old Rhys nearly died when he suffered a heart attack while suffering from cardiomyopathy.

He survived to have a heart transplant within 24 hours of going on the waiting list.

Rhys, from Borough Green, Kent, has now found love with fellow recipient, Eloise, and is looking forward to representing Great Britain in swimming at the World Transplant Games.
