Hospital video captures the essence of a heart transplant survivor
The adage ‘doctors make the worst patients’ may be true—in some cases. However, the humanity of a veterinarian who underwent cardio surgery makes for an emotional, visually charged story.
The clip is just three minutes long, but it has all the right elements to make it a compelling video.
Communicators at University of Maryland Medical Center did well with Kerry Murphy on camera. The young veterinarian speaks candidly about her heart transplant five years ago. With intermittent shots of Murphy’s crystal blue eyes brimming with tears, the video shows and tells key points of her story:
- Farm animals
- Survivors competing in the Transplant Olympics
- The vow to “live well to honor your donor”
