Ellen TV: Tayt Andersen Heart Transplant
Tayt Andersen is on the list for a heart transplant. Crissy said that because Tayt has had so many surgeries, it limits his donor pool to about 27 percent, but things are looking good. Tayt was really excited for his heart. Ellen said that people should look into becoming an organ donor and go to her website to find out more information. Tayt Andersen said he thought that was a really good idea.
