Luis Correa De Jesús was twenty-three when he was diagnosed with kidney disease, but it wasn’t until seventeen years later that his kidneys failed completely, and he went on dialysis. Three years later, while in the process of getting on the waiting list for a kidney transplant, doctors discovered Luis was in heart failure as well. He would need both a kidney and heart transplant to survive. In July, 2007 Luis became the first person ever to receive a dual heart/kidney transplant at the Cardiovascular Center in Puerto Rico. He says, “I feel doubly blessed, I have received two chances, while there are so many waiting for one. I thank God and my donor, every moment, for this second chance at life.  I’m certain that God has a purpose for all this”.
