- Keynote Speaker
Bill Coon, a two-time heart transplant recipient.
Bill was born with Hypoplastic Left Ventricle Syndrome, a congenital birth defect. Bill only had 21 days left to live, for if the doctors waited any longer than twenty-one days, the rest of his organs would begin to fail. In the final hours of Bill’s twenty-first day, the phone rang with a donor offer and Bill became the fourth infant heart transplant ever performed in the Midwest and the eighth in the nation. Years passed, and he never suffered any complications. That was until the age of 20, when he was rushed to the hospital where a team of doctors informed him that he was in both end-stage heart and kidney failure. Bill later spent 70 days in the Intensive Care Unit of a Chicago hospital awaiting a double transplant and a second chance at life. Fortunately, and thanks to the generosity and selflessness of Bill’s second donor, his life was saved again.
