Jordyn Spann

At age 32, Jordyn Spann – a wife and mother of 4 – learned she had a brain tumor. Her mission to find the best surgeons led her to Vanderbilt and a 16-hour surgery that removed her acoustic neuroma and returned her to family life.

Anne Wolfe

Just before Anne Wolfe faced one of the toughest times in her life, everything fell into place. An unanticipated move to Bowling Green, Kentucky, put her closer to Vanderbilt — and the treatment that saved her life.


Jessica Biggs

Jessica Biggs was scared to go to sleep at night. At 32, she had her first heart attack, then a second, third and fourth within a few months. The Smith County schoolteacher couldn’t find answers about the underlying cause until she came to Vanderbilt.


Maurice McAllister

Maurice McAllister’s heart was failing him. Being there to raise his teen daughters helped him more easily make the decision to opt for an innovative option in heart transplant in Vanderbilt, and now he’s helping educate others.

James George

James George had not one, but two transplants at Vanderbilt. He received a new liver and then about a decade later, a kidney. Now 67, he’s working on his Master’s degree and living a full life again without dialysis.

All I have to do now is just take care of this new gift I have. That’s amazing to me.
