Best Friends Meet at Hospital and Create Their Own Band

Caleb Daniel, Jayden Bradley, and Caleb Aslinger, ages 5-6, met at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital while they were each waiting for lifesaving heart transplants. 

For five months, the three boys were seen pulling their IV poles, wearing portable oxygen nasal cannulas, and facemasks. The boys quickly became best friends, even forming a band called the "Vandy Rockers"!
