Brockport, N.Y. (WHAM) - Four months ago Zach Losee was brought to Strong Memorial Hospital with heart failure; on Saturday he and his new heart were welcomed home to Brockport at a pancake breakfast.
On Thanksgiving Day, Zach was brought to New York City where he had open heart surgery and later, received a brand new heart.
"To be home, to actually bring my son home after this journey is the greatest gift of all,” said Julie Prest, Zach's mom. “The other greatest gift is that somebody made that decision, to donate their organ."
Zach will have to go back and forth to New York City to make sure his body does not reject his new heart.
