According to doctors at Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, 15-year-old Anthony Stokes has less than 6 months to live. The teen has been hospitalized since July, but despite the severity of his heart condition, he’s been denied the chance to get a transplant due to low grades and legal trouble.

The Stokes’ family says Anthony is being denied due to his performance in school and previous run-ins with the law.

“They said they don’t have any evidence that he would take his medicine or that he would go to his follow-ups,” Melencia Hamilton, Anthony’s mother, told WSBTV News. In their words, Anthony has been labeled as “non-compliant.”
