Jimmy Kimmel Opens Up About His Newborn Son’s Heart Valve Surgery

By Adam Pick on May 4, 2017

As a dad… As a heart valve patient… I need to say “Thank You!” to Jimmy Kimmel for sharing this emotional and inspirational story about Billy, his newborn son.

 

 

Many, many, many, many thanks to Dr. Vaughn Starnes (who performed my surgery) and Dr. Evan Zahn for taking such great care of the Kimmels!

Keep on tickin’ Billy!
