Dying boy overjoyed when parents tell him he’s getting a new heart.

Ari Schultz is only 8 years old, but he’s been waiting for almost a year for a heart transplant. He has a rare heart defect critical aortic stenosis, which was diagnosed while he was still in the womb. Without a new heart, he would die by his early teens.

See the moment when Ari finds out from his parents, Mike and Erica, that he’s getting a new heart, and share in his genuine excitement that he’s on the road to recovery…
