Heart Patient, 09/07/68: KHOU reporter Judd McIlvain visits Leo Boyd, a railway yard master from Chippawa, Ontario, at St. Luke's Episcopal Hospital. Boyd flew from London, Ontario, to Houston on September 1 to undergo heart transplant surgery with Dr. Denton Cooley. Dr. C. T. Lamont, Boyd's physician in Canada, arranged the trip, even appearing on television to appeal for funds to charter an air ambulance. Donors raised the necessary $1,300 within 30 minutes. Lamont felt Boyd had six months to live without a heart transplant.
