Woman who crochets scarves for the needy receives heart transplant

[KMSP Fox 9 News, June 30, 2015] After a very short wait, Elizabeth Sammons, who spends her time crocheting scarves for the needy, got her heart transplant just two weeks ago and is now ready to go home.

Sammons was able to manage making four scarves for the needy while waiting for her transplant at Abbott Northwestern Hospital's Minneapolis Heart Institute, but her old heart was getting weak.

“I would fall asleep while crocheting,” Sammons said. “That would be an issue.”

But now, with a steady heartbeat and better energy, she's back at it.
