LEXINGTON, Ky. - UK Healthcare officials are calling an $87 million dollar loan from the university a prudent business decision, which allowed the organization to maintain its reserve funds.

Members of a heart transplant support group met for a special Valentine's Day celebration at UK hospital Tuesday.

"Organ donation saves lives," Dr. Charles Shelton, a recovering heart transplant patient at UK, ended his speech at the Valentine's Day get-together of the Heart to Heart support group. They meet to share stories, update each other, and become part of a community. Peter Forman has undergone multiple heart procedures at UK and says there's no substitute for one-on-one conversation with people who have first-hand experience.
