I never thought of how great a mother’s instinct was until I see this. Freda Carter’s son John died from a brain tumor at the age of 33, and then his heart, liver and kidneys were donated to help those in need. They’ve no idea who had received his son’s heart except they knew it was a teenager named Scott. But one day when they attended a memorial service while accidently Scott was there to give a speech, the mother, Mrs. Carter, instinctively knew that his son’s heart was there, inside that body. This is miraculous, and this is the name of mother!
Meet Mrs. Carter and his son, John.
Scott, who has received the heart of John, is now an aspiring actor.
But there is still a scar on his chest.
Mother and son: Mrs Carter with her son John before his death at the age of 33. She says her ‘dying wish’ was to feel his heart beat again.
Scott, pictured as a 14-year-old in hospital was born with a disorder called transposition of the great arteries and when he received John’s heart he was just hours away from death.
A smiling Scott pictured in his hospital bed nine days after his life-saving surgery, when he was beginning to feel well again. He was on the road to recovery.
Now he’s a promising actor due to the heart donated by John.
The Carters, pictured with John before his death, said their son lives on through Scott, and they are ‘over the moon’, to have been able to help the teenager.
Let’s give our best wishes to this kind and great couple!
