Corpus Christi Teen Moving Home After Heart Operation

Two Corpus Christi residents are about to have the most stress-free moving experience either of them have ever had. In January of last year, Corpus Christie teen, Taylor Berry, moved to Houston with his mother into an apartment near the Texas Children’s Hospital where the young boy awaited the arrival of his much-needed donor heart. When Taylor was a four-year-old, he received his first heart transplant. Complications made his first operation a difficult experience both for him and his family; however, his condition eventually stabilized, and Taylor lived a pretty normal life for about ten years until his donor heart failed requiring a second transplant. Taylor and his mother, Tamara, moved to Houston away from Taylor’s father and sister where Taylor waited for his new heart which he received in mid-July. Now that doctors have approved Taylor’s return to Corpus Christi, he and his mom are packing boxes and bins in preparation for their much anticipated move back to Corpus!
