Grab A Tissue, You’re Gonna Need It..

GRIEVING DAD MEETS LATE DAUGHTER’S HEART RECIPIENT

Get the tissues ready for this one because you’re going to need them.

Bill Conner is on a 2,000-mile bicycle ride from his home in Madison, Wisconsin, to Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, in the hopes of raising money and awareness for organ donation.

Conner’s long journey is in honor of his late 20-year-old daughter, Abigail, who died in a hotel pool in Cancun, Mexico, last winter. The family decided to donate her organs, and so far there are four men who have received her life-saving organs.

On his way to Florida, Connor stopped off in Louisiana to meet the 21-year-old man who received Abigail’s heart.

Loumonth Jack Jr. suffered a heart attack and needed a transplant to survive. Abigail’s heart was a perfect match and the transplant was a success. Video was rolling as the two men met with a long hug and lots of tears.

Things then got really emotional when Jack presented Connor with a stethoscope so that he could listen to Abigail’s heart beating.
