Austin was a fighter and didn't meet a stranger. He was a hard worker and loved the outdoors. He was born with HLHS and received his first heart transplant at 11 weeks old. Austin's second heart transplant was in 2011. Pneumonia set him on the course for a kidney transplant in 2014. He was no stranger to struggle and pain, but he tried to keep his spirits up. Austin had a calm, quiet personality. He received so many gifts and was able to donate back.
