     William Halliburton was the picture of good health. The 21 year old was starting his senior year of college when he went to the doctor for stomach pain. Doctors discovered his heart was functioning at 10 percent. He was rushed to the University of Kansas Health System and placed on life support days later. William received a heart transplant less than a week after his first appointment. All Things Heart investigates what caused his heart failure and when to know if a stomach ache is a sign of a more serious medical condition.
