Heidi McGraw knew something wasn't right. "I was always out of breath," she says. Tests revealed a tumor on her thymus that was putting pressure on her heart and lungs. At Baylor Scott & White The Heart Hospital – Plano, surgeons used minimally invasive robotic surgery to remove the tumor. Her recovery time was reduced from eight weeks to three weeks versus traditional surgery, so she could resume normal activities with her son much sooner. "When I was sick, I had to rely on friends to take him to games," she says. "Now I'm there cheering him on."
