Las Vegas teacher gets a new heart!

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — A Las Vegas teacher who was in need of a new heart has finally received her miracle. Kyryn Cooper Sanders is a teacher at Goynes Elementary Stem Academy, and she received a new heart on Friday.

She has been teaching for 23 years and has been part of the Goynes family since 2005.

Early into last school year, Sanders was diagnosed with the flu and then pneumonia. In March she was diagnosed with viral cardiomyopathy. Her name was added to the United Network Organ Sharing Transplant List, and today was the day she received her new heart!

Sanders’ husband sent 8 News NOW the following text message about the good news:

Sanders has four little boys staying with relatives from California.

There is a GoFundMe page set up for Sanders to help her pay for her medical bills. If you would like to support, go here.
