“After biking 1400 miles through several states, Conner stopped in Ventress, Louisiana to meet his daughter’s heart recipient, Loumonth who suffered a heart attack at the age of 20. Doctors gave him days to live. Without Abbey’s heart, Roppy wouldn’t be alive today.”

Que gran lección de vida. https://t.co/0P8xAD0Rcz
