Camden 10-year-old Amari Williams did something Nov. 16 he hadn’t been able to do in four months: leave a Charleston hospital. Physicians discharged Amari that day after the Camden Elementary School student spent those four months in intensive care waiting for -- and getting -- a new heart. The process for transplant is extensive and very involved.
