Grieving Mom Hears Donor Son’s Heartbeat After His Death

In 2013, Heather suffered a nightmare no parent should have to endure. Her son, Lucas, was only seven months old when he died under the supervision of a babysitter. Not wanting another mom to have to go through the pain of losing a child if she could help it, Heather made a quick and selfless decision; she donated Lucas’ organs to three other people in need.

One of those recipients whose life was saved by Lucas was a four-year-old girl named Jordan who spent years living inside the hospital with a congenital heart defect. In the emotionally charged meeting below, Heather meets Jordan and her family. Using a stethoscope against Jordan’s chest, Heather is able to hear Lucas’ heart beating again. Jordan also gifted Clark a Build-a-Bear containing a recording of Lukas’ heart.

According to Donate Life, more than 8,500 deceased donors made possible approximately 24,000 organ transplants in 2014. And sadly, an average of 21 people die each day because the organs they need are not donated in time.

This emotionally charged moment is simply unforgettable. Watch the story behind these two families, and please SHARE this incredible moment with your friends on Facebook.
