ATLANTA – A 10-year-old heart transplant recipient is proving that girls do run the world.
On August 24 and 25, Beyoncé and Jay-Z are bringing their On The Run II Tour to Atlanta’s Mercedes-Benz Stadium and Jaidyn Cross wants to be there.
Beyoncé is Jaidyn’s idol and if she gets her wish granted, Beyoncé would be her first-ever concert.
Jaidyn was admitted to Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta in March after being treated for several months at a Savannah, Ga. hospital where she lives. The 10-year-old was diagnosed with dilated cardiomyopathy with significant heart failure.
As Jaidyn’s heart failure quickly progressed, she was placed on a left ventricular assist device and put on the heart transplant list. Five days later, she was placed on biventricular VAD support.
After six weeks on BiVAD support, Jaidyn had a successful heart transplant in May. Unfortunately, her post-operative and rehabilitative care was prolonged due to complications.
After four months in the hospital, Jaidyn was able to return home on Aug. 8. She now dreams of becoming a pediatric cardiologist.
Children's told 11Alive Jaidyn loves to sing and dance with her cousins, which prompted her to create a video where she sings along to her favorite Beyoncé song, “Love On Top.”
