Aug 12 - 15 year old kid in ATL denied from heart transplant list b/c of past bad behavior

A 15-year-old Georgia teen was denied a shot at a life-saving heart transplant because of his history with law enforcement and poor grades, according to his family.

MyFoxAtlanta.com reports that officials at Children's Healthcare of Atlanta at Egleston have informed patient Anthony Stokes' family that he doesn’t qualify for its heart transplant list because he has a history of "non-compliance."

"They said they don’t have any evidence that he would take his medicine or that he would go to his follow-ups," Melencia Hamilton, Anthony’s mother told WSBTV.com.

Hamilton told the station that her son, who suffers from an enlarged heart, has only six months to live and needs the transplant to survive.

While doctors at the hospital have not revealed the specific reason Anthony was kept off the list, family friends told WSBTV.com that his juvenile record and past performance in school played a role in the decision.

“They've given him a death sentence,” Christine Young Brown, president of the Newton-Rockdale chapter of the Southern Christian Leadership Conference told the station.

Hamilton suspects the family's financial situation may also have played a role in the hospital's decision.

"I think that they don't think that we can pay for the medicine. We probably couldn't get to the doctor visits because of transportation. I don't have a car," Hamilton told MyFoxAtlanta.com.

Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta said in a statement, "The well-being of our patients is always our first priority. We are continuing to work with this family and looking at all options regarding this patient's health care. We follow very specific criteria in determining eligibility for a transplant of any kind."

That's crazy, at 15 they wrote his life off as not worth it. While the odds are against him, many, if not most of the most successful black men in our history have come from the wrong side of the law. Malcolm would be the obvious example--the streets came to teach him that there was more to life and he went on to success. I'm not saying that this kid is the next Malcolm X, I'm not even saying he's the next Joe Brown, but history has shown that people can evolve.

I understand why they need criteria in place, because there are a limited number of organs for transplant and they want them to go to people who will follow through with treatment, but it's just hard not to wonder if they would overlook this stuff if he wasn't a young black man.

he doesn't deserve it because he's non compliant....with school???? and he broke the law??? give me a fu*king break with that mentality. if that's the case then white people shouldn't be allowed to speak, say sh*t or hold office for all the history of treacherous actions they have taken against black folks.

when you go to court, they bring up your criminal history and 'judge' you off of that.

when you go for a job, they bring up your job history, credit history, school history, drug test, medical history sometimes, and give you a job based off of that.

yet when black people talk about slavery, the most brutal and viscous actions done to black people, seemingly, IN HISTORY, we have to forget about it......it's over....we are free now.....get past it.

i'm just tired of the hypocrisy. no one wants to address this issue and then wonder why the country is in the condition that it's in. yea, please get the entire fuk outta here with this.

help this man to live. racist a.ss hospital.

Always like Black people to be so ashamed with themselves that they try to put their "brothers" in place in the name of their masters.....fu*k your advice B

I wonder if the same rules applied when White murderers and rapists got their second chance. This is clearly ATL's way of controlling the racial and social makeup of those they grant second chances to. Pretty disgusting

no surprise if you've been in prison your not eligible for organ transplant

if they think you wont comply with the diet your not eligible for organ transplant

when you get a organ transplant you have to take 30 pills a day at certain times everyday or you will lose the the organ

no drinking alcohol no weed this kid has shown he wont comply in life

Its all well and good for this kid not to get a heart, he will just become a criminal. We shouldnt give treatment to drunk drivers either, they deserved it. The elderly too, theyll just die soon any way. If you start creating reasons why someone isnt eligible to medical treatment, eventually only the privileged will be able to receive it. Will you be able to prove that you deserve to live by their standards? Do you think your life will be worth it?
