West Texas kids meet for heart reunion at Covenant

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - February is National Heart Awareness month, and today about 100 West Texas children who have undergone heart surgery met for a reunion at Covenant Children's Hospital. Before Covenant started their pediatric heart program 8 years ago many of these kids would have had to travel to Dallas or Houston for treatment.

"That's been a great thing for the families and the children here in West Texas is that we can now do all forms of heart surgery on children right here in Lubbock," said Dr. Jim Harrell. This is the 4th year for the pediatric heart reunion.
