15-year-old Anthony Stokes, who was previously denied a spot on the heart transplant list at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, has now been placed on that list.

The hospital put Stokes on the transplant list on Tuesday afternoon after a public outcry and media frenzy surrounded his story.

Initially, his mother Melencia Hamilton received a letter from the hospital denying placement on the transplant list because of his “history of non-compliance”.

However, she claimed her son did not have a track record to prove he would not take medication or follow doctor’s orders properly; citing that it was unfair to keep him off the list. He also did not have a history of illness.

Hamilton received the letter despite the fact that she was told the only way her son could survive was through a heart transplant.

Luckily, according to the Inquisitr, Stokes has been moved to the top of list and he will receive a heart as soon as one comes available because of the “severity of his illness.”
