Claude Burnham reflects on his life 20 years after receiving a transplanted heart from a donor in Georgia.
Claude Burnham shows off the back of a UNC Tar Heel sweatshirt that says “ I am a Carolina Tar Heel” on the front and “But my heart belongs to the Georgia Bulldogs” on the back. He believes his transplanted heart came from a University of Georgia student.
Claude Burnham holds his granddaughter, Madeline, in 1995. She’s now a senior in high school, and Burnham credits a new heart with giving him the chance to see her grow up.
Claude Burnham played Nathan Radley in the Piedmont Players Theatre production of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird.’ Scout is played by Sara Beth Richard.
