Jamol Brocks

Jamol Brocks was at work when he experienced chest pains. At Baylor Heart and Vascular Hospital, he was diagnosed with myocarditis, an inflammation of the heart muscle. To give his heart time to rest, physicians on the medical staff inserted an Impella®, a temporary device that helps a weakened heart pump blood. When Jamol's kidneys and liver started to fail, and he was put on full life support. A few days later, his organs began to function normally again. After 18 days in the hospital, Jamol went home. "Going to Baylor was the best decision I ever made. I felt like I was in good hands."
