Woman Hears Heartbeat of Her Late Partner One More Time in Another Man's Chest
It was a powerful moment.
An emotional mom got the chance to hear her late partner’s heartbeat one more time.
It happened as Aletha Gomez came face-to-face with 63-year-old Jim Donovan, who received Perry Choy’s heart after Choy suffered a devastating stroke.
‘It was loud, it was strong, as strong as his love for us actually,” Gomez said as her voice broke.
Choy’s last wish to Gomez was to donate his heart.
“He told me, ‘You know, when I pass away, when I die, what am I gonna do with it? Might as well donate it and save more lives,'" Choy told KOVR.
Donovan had congestive heart failure and would have died if not for Choy’s heart.
"I'm proud, really proud," Donovan said. "I actually gave up and I gave up for a long time and I didn't think anything would happen."
Donovan said he is going to visit his grandchildren and celebrate his second chance at life.
“This is his will, this is what he wants,” Gomez said of Choy.
