Megan Moss Johnson has become a famous name after she gave life to 50 people. Unfortunately, she saved these lives after losing her own. Megan was a heart patient who herself got a new life after a donor donated her his heart. She felt extremely grateful to the donor and decided to become an organ donor herself. Megan Moss had a beautiful life. She was blessed with a loving husband Nathan Johnson and had a normal pregnancy. The day she delivered her first baby Eilee Kate, her husband and Megan both were very happy. But their happiness was short lived. Just eight hours after she successfully delivered her baby girl, Megan died of a cardiac arrest.

“Nathan is devastated,” Megan and Nathan’s common friend Wilson wrote on a public funding page that he set up for the family. “There are no words for this, so I won’t really say much more. Here is what I know. Nathan is a wonderful man and an amazing father. He loves his daughter dearly. “

People donated money generously for Nathan Johnson, and his daughter Eilee. He received 10 times more than the set limit of $40,000.
“She loved people, loved her husband so much. She also had a great faith in Jesus,” Wilson told CNN about Megan. “The sadness and the grief are very real, but we still feel that there is hope.”
When Megan Moss was just 15, she contracted a virus that led to myocarditis, a potentially fatal heart disease marked by inflammation of the heart. Megan needed a heart transplant by the age of 23 because of later complications, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“I never thought about being an organ donor until I needed one,” “It can save lives. It saved mine. It’s the gift of life.” Megan Moss Johnson

Megan documented her journey on her blog and in a book about her named “Megan’s Heart.” After her successful heart transplant, she married Nathan and moved to Nashville.

    Wow, what a truly tragic yet beautiful story. To think in a matter of minutes, even in the most perfect of moments like the birth of a child, your life can just suddenly change. I truly pray for Megan, her husband, and beautiful daughter. However, though this is somewhat sad and tragic, the fact that she lovingly offered her organs post death to help 50 some odd people is mind blowing and beautiful. I would never wish this on anyone however, I love how the story ended with Megan’s gift to others.

    Megan was way too young when she died. I can’t imagine being diagnosed with myocarditis at age 15! I love how she shared her journey about her heart transplant etc. on her blog and in a book called “Megan’s Heart. She is so heroic by becoming an organ donor. Who knew she would end up saving 50 lives!
