In August 2013, local news media quoted Stokes' family as saying that doctors at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston refused to put Stokes on a transplant waiting list because of his troubled past and their belief he wouldn't comply with the strict plan for medication and follow-up treatment.
What a waste. Give someone numerous chances and they continue to act like morons.
teen who got heart transplant dies in crash during police chase
His mother must be VERY embarrassed since http://www.nbcnews.com/news/crime-c...o-got-heart-transplant-dies-car-chase-n334001Just over a month later, Stokes told a reporter with WSB-TV in Atlanta that the transplant would help him stay out of trouble.
"So I can live a second chance. Get a second chance and do things I want to do," Stokes told the television reporter.
Anyway, none of those articles didn't mention who paid for the heart transplant. Her health insurance or out of her pocket (maybe donation from fools)?Doctors rebuffed Stokes because he had a "history of noncompliance," and they did not think he would take his medications or show up for follow-up appointments, Stokes' mother said. The hospital changed its mind after his mother accused doctors of punishing her son for a history of run-ins with the law.
