Heart Transplant Fight Continues

Paul Corby with his mother.
POTTSVILLE, Penn. -- A Pottsville woman is fighting for her autistic son to receive a desperately needed heart transplant after he was denied placement on the national heart transplant list.
Paul Corby, 23, has PDD-NOS, also known as Pervasive Developmental Disorder-Not Otherwise Specified, an autism spectrum disorder. But he is otherwise able-bodied and highly functioning, and was diagnosed with a heart condition in 2008 when he was 19 years old.
