- A US woman lost her daughter in 2015 and decided to donate her heart to save the life of a young child in need
- Two years later, she has met the little girl whose life her daughter's heart saved
- The touching moment was captured on video
In July 2015, an Ohio mother's worst fear unraveled—her eight-year-old daughter suddenly passed away after an asthmatic attack. She then selflessly decided to donate her heart for a child who may be in need of a heart transplant.
At the same time, five-year-old Peyton Richardson, based in Atlanta, Georgia, had been on a heart transplant list for months after a cold virus attacked her heart. Tests established that Amber Travaglio's daughter's heart was a match for little Peyton.
Amber gave her permission for the heart transplant to go ahead, thereby saving Peyton's life. Now, in a touching moment two years later, Amber has met Peyton, who carries the heart of her dead daughter, Melody.
Amber has described the moment she met Peyton as touching and emotional, and has added that it gave her closure and healing over her daughter sudden passing two years ago.
