heart

Heather Clark’s 7-month-old son, Lukas, died in 2013, but because of Clark donating her son’s organs, 3 other children received a chance at life. And she recently got the chance to meet the 4-year-old girl who received her son’s heart.

Donate Life Arizona shared photos of the emotional meeting on Facebook. The group also captured the reunion on video.

“Amid the unthinkable grief of losing her son Lukas, Heather made a decision that saved three lives,” the nonprofit said in a statement. “Jordan received Lukas’ precious heart when she was just 18 months old. Yesterday, Heather heard her son’s heartbeat for the first time in nearly three years.”

    I teared up reading this. I imagine it must have been hard for this woman to lose her baby and then donate his organs. She’s truly inspirational for that.

    Very touching story. It is beautiful when lives are saved. The mother who lost her son certainly is going through a lot. Also, another child being saved by receiving a heart shows the power of love and human compassion.
