By Choosing to Donate Their Daughter’s Organs – Her Heart Can Now Beat On
Todd and Tara Storch's 13 year old daughter, Taylor, tragically died in a ski accident. Her brave parents decided to donate the organs she left behind in order to save the lives of others.
More than anything, Tara wanted to hear Taylor's hear beating and giving someone else the life that was taken too soon from the young girl, and hopefully have some sort of connection with them.
Using the internet, friends discovered who was hosting Taylor's heart. Patricia Winter's heart had started failing 5 years prior, after the birth of her second son and she could no longer take care of her children. With Taylor's heart, Patricia can now be mom again. When she was first contacted by the Storch's friends, she began following Taylor's story and knew she had to meet the couple - so she reached out.
The two moms immediately built a special bond. Excited and nervous to meet each other, in this video we see that pivotal moment when the two meet for the first time, and it is incredibly touching.
We go on to watch Tara listen through a stethoscope to her daughter's heart beating in Patricia's chest. Taylor has given Patricia the most unbelievable gift - the gift of life - and we are left with this unforgettable story. Please SHARE.
