On 1/25/2020 they received the call that they have been praying for! Hayley would be getting a new heart.
On 1/26/2020 the Heart Transplant surgery was performed in Salt Lake City, UT. and everything went well.

A post from her mother (Lyndee Hill-Diamond)
“We got the call yesterday, and TODAY is the day. Hayley has been on the Heart Transplant waiting list for 2.5 years, and she is going back to get her new heart in less than an hour. There are many mixed emotions right now including excitement, fear, happiness, anxiousness. We are super grateful for the miracle that is being provided by a loving, and giving person/family that lost, but is helping Hayley to live a longer, healthier life. THANK YOU. Wish us good luck. Prayers, and loves. UPDATE: THE HEART IS IN, AND SHE IS OFF BYPASS. STILL SEWING UP BUT SHE'S DOING GREAT!”

1/27/2020 @ 7:30pm – “Update on Hayley: Everything is going pretty well. She was doing so well that they tried to wake her up, and to let her breath on her own. However she had other plans. Lol. Typical teenager style(especially Hayley), decided she was not ready to wake up. She did breath ok around the vent, but her blood pressure dropped very low, a few times requiring interventions which made them understand she was not ready. So, she is back under sedation, and still on the ventilator.” - Troy

1/28/2020 @ 8:45am - “Good Morning everyone. Hayley had a great night, they were able to pull the ET tube, and she is breathing on her own. She is still super sleepy, and her first word was stop lol. I dont blame her, having no control would be tough.” - Lyndee
