5. Have a Heart. On this date in 1957, Lewis Washkansky received the first human heart transplant. Wahkansky died 18 days after the transplant from double pneumonia, to which he was made susceptible by the immune-supressing drugs he took to avoid rejecting the new heart. Still, the new heart appeared to have functioned properly until his death.
