Q&A with Eileen Ryan: Transplant recipient cherishes gift of life

Posted on September 1st, 2011 by

At 47, Eileen Ryan of the Southside was diagnosed with cardiomyopathy, a disease of the heart muscle, that led to congestive heart failure. She was put on medication and began the journey toward an eventual heart transplant…I was referred to Mayo Clinic and to Dr. Daniel Yip. He and the wonderful Mayo Transplant Team took over and began searching for a donor heart…Ryan encourages everyone she meets to consider becoming an organ donor and sings the praises of the Mayo Clinic.
