Craif Lewis, 55, was suffering from amyloidosis – a life-threatening disease that fills internal organs with a viscous protein that causes rapid heartbeat and kidney as well as liver failure. Even a pacemaker couldn’t help him when Dr Billy Cohn and Dr O.H. “Bud” Frazier, from Texas Heart Institute, came into his life.
