Life on the Line: Heart to Heart

About This Episode


For the Escarcega family, their worst nightmare becomes a harrowing reality. Their newborn baby is slowly dying from congenital heart disease. Doctors tell them it’s the beginning of the end...unless a heart becomes available for transplant surgery. Life on the Line: Heart to Heart follows Baby David’s journey and reflects on the pioneering efforts of infant heart transplantation that took place 30 years ago with Baby Fae.
