It’s hard to imagine being a parent and having a son essentially be killed in a car accident. Harder still, to imagine keeping him alive only to have him go. However, knowing that your son could give somebody else life, would be somewhat of a relief.
Lisa Swanson’s son Levi was killed in a car accident in 2012. He was placed on life support so that his organs could be preserved for donation.
This week, Lisa was able to hear her son’s heart beat inside somebody else. Terry Hooper was the recipient of Levi’s heart. You have to watch this.
