13-Year-Old Transplant Patient Gets Limo Ride Home

Posted on April 7, 2016

13-year-old heart transplant patient Albert "Alj" Jeffries was finally able to return home after a 128-day stay at the UNC Children's Hospital. 

Alj's recovery had taken longer than originally planned, as health complications arose after the transplant. His mother told Inside Edition he was briefly on dialysis for a kidney complication, and had to stay in the ICU longer than expected.

On April 6, almost exactly a month after he said he "felt like a new person" with his new heart, Alj was deemed healthy enough to return home.

Officer Jack Boyles, III from the Burlington Police Department even took the day off to give the North Carolina boy a ride home.

According to WFMY, Boyles owns a local limousine company and offered the boy and his mom a free limo ride for his big day.

"It's turned into an absolute blessing and a second chance for this young man and I'm so honored and proud to be a part of that," Officer Boyles said.
