Miami's healthcare scene is set to make a quantum leap with the Jackson Health Foundation's latest endeavor.

During the campaign announcement, shared the transformative journey of Dr. Erika Rolle. Having battled cardiomyopathy since 2006, Rolle underwent a life-saving heart transplant back in 2015, at the Miami Transplant Institute, made possible, as she put it – "because Jackson made it possible for me to have that hope and keep the hope as well as the faith."
