Galen “G” Dahl, 13, is much like any other 7th grader. He loves skiing, math, jumping on his trampoline, video games and his dog, Flash. He is a self-confessed Harry Potter fanatic who enjoys hanging out with his buddies. One would never know just by looking at him that underneath the shirt he wore to school he bares a large scar from a heart transplant performed eleven years ago.
His mom, Jade, will never forget the day they took G to urgent care with what the family thought were symptoms of a virus. G had been feeling under the weather, but Jade had an eerie feeling something wasn’t right. “His feet were swollen and he was extremely thirsty,” she said. “His doctor noticed he looked a little blue, too.”
