Cheney: My Health 'Nothing Short of Miracle'

Sunday, 16 June 2013 04:25 PM

Former Vice President Dick Cheney says his health is "nothing short of a miracle."

The heart transplant recipient says he now wakes up each morning "with a smile on my face, thankful for the gift of another day I never expected to see."

Cheney tells "Fox News Sunday" that he was "near death" when he received a battery-operated heart pump in 2011. Cheney says the pump kept him alive for 20 months until he received the transplant in 2012 at age 71.
