His alarmed parents take him to an array of doctors for tests that lead to a dire diagnosis of a degenerative heart condition which could kill him within five years. Shocked and scared, and getting sicker all the time, Sam undergoes a transplant, then faces an even more grueling ordeal as doctors battle to keep his body from rejecting the new organ.
