Murans' journey through his heart world began very early. At just three months he was diagnosed with tetralogy of fallot,a congenital heart defect which is classically understood to involve four anatomical abnormalities of the heart (although only three of them are always present). It is the most common cyanotic heart defect, and the most common cause of blue baby syndrome Muran underwent open heart surgery, then again at 6 years old.
Murans' youthful and teenage years where great. Surrounded by loving family and friends, he graduated high school and while away at Bloomfield college in his junior year, he began another journey through that heart world, this time a lot more intense. After beating some impossible odds, Muran received a heart and liver transplant on March 25, 2010 at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania in Philadelphia, PA.
While maintaining his position as president, founder and CEO of "Hearts N Hand" Muran plans to help lead TRIO Youth Circle to new heights.
As Muran tells it: "After beating some impossible odds, I'm back, and when all else is equal, I'm the difference."
