Dick Cheney Was ‘Very Near Death’ In 2010

Former Vice President Dick Cheney‘s heart problems haven’t been been a secret, but on Wednesday, his daughter revealed that, in 2010, he was “very near death.”

POLITICO reported that she was referring to “when his recurring heart problems required a medical procedure that prolonged his life for just 18 months.”

Per their report:

Speaking at POLITICO’s Playbook Breakfast with Mike Allen, the younger Cheney said that the 2010 procedure kept her father alive until March when he underwent a heart transplant that has been “miraculous” in allowing him to return to normal life.

“I think, for us, as a family, the incredible lesson and the gratitude we feel to the donor family – we don’t know the donor family – there really are not words to describe that gift, what that means,” she said. “It’s the gift of life.”
