Connor Marvin of Elizabethtown underwent heart transplant surgery starting at around 4:30 a.m. on Thursday, March 1.

— “Brock’s heart attack was on April 28, 2008,” Marvin said. “When we get back to the North Country from rehab, it will be just about at that same date. It has been four years since I have had two healthy sons, and it is quite a feeling.”

Marvin also said that, for the second time, his heart went out to a family who, while the Marvins and Mitchells are celebrating, were mourning.

“You sit here and think to yourself how lucky you are, but know that at the same time there is another family that is making funeral arrangements today,” Marvin said. “Thanks to these families and their gracious acts, both of my guys were given the chance that they needed.”
