Heart of Cape Town

Groote Schuur Hospital was the first hospital in the world to perform the first ever Heart Transplant. A road accident on the fateful morning of December 2nd 1967 would lead to a chain of events that would break medical history and advance medicine as we know it. The Heart of Cape Town Museum honors the memory of the face behind the heart: Denise Darvall. Not only did she donate her heart that day but she gave the world hope for a second chance to live. This is groundbreaking history that needs to be seen to believe.
