Sofia Sanchez, Famously Visited by Drake in Hospital, Feeling 'Great' Following Heart Transplant
The little girl captured the hearts of America after she excitedly learned she would be receiving a new heart.
Sofia Sanchez, 11, is finally home and out of the hospital after many weeks inside Chicago Ronald McDonald House and now has a new heart.
She made headlines last month when Drake surprised her while she was waiting for the transplant.
Less than a week after the "In My Feelings" rapper's visit, Sofia screeched with delight and cried tears of joy as she learned she would be getting a new heart.
"It feels great to be back to myself," she said at a news conference Thursday in Chicago.
Well-wishers applauded Sofia as she graciously acknowledged the person who saved her life.
"Thank you for the donor's family for donating their organs, if it weren’t for you, I wouldn’t be here now and would probably still be in the hospital," she added.
