In a Canadian first, Kingston man’s stopped heart retrieved and restarted for transplant

May 15, 2024
For Lorraine and Derk Sherren, the unexpected death of their 40-year-old son was crushing enough on its own, but the tragedy felt compounded when the couple heard it wouldn’t be possible to donate his heart to someone in need.The barrier to a heart donation was the fact that Robbie Sherren, a Special Olympics bowler who suffered an aneurysm in late April, fell just short of meeting the strict criteria for brain death as he lay in an intensive-care unit in Kingston. His pupils occasionally constricted when a light was shone in his eyes. He had no other signs of brain activity, and no hope of recovery.
