Cheney recovering after heart transplant op

Cheney had been on the transplant list for 20 months following a mild heart attack – his fifth – in February 2010 and subsequent chest pains and discomfort four months later (Jun10).

An anonymous donor was found for Cheney and he underwent the procedure at Inova Fairfax Hospital in Falls Church, Virginia.

A statement from Cheney’s office reads, “Although the former Vice President and his family do not know the identity of the donor, they will forever be grateful for this lifesaving gift.”
