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. “
“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 Moss Johnson Became a Mother
Their happiness knew no bounds when Megan and Nathan Johnsons became first-time parents.
“They were so excited after (their daughter) was born that they couldn’t really sleep,” “They were giddy.” Their close friend Wilson told CNN. Megan’s husband Nathan Johnson happily posted a beautiful picture of their small family on Instagram.
“Happy Birthday Eilee Kate Johnson,” Nathan posted. “Megan was/is a professional and feels great. Her heart worked perfectly the whole time and Eilee introduced herself quickly and smooth. I am a rich man!!!” However, eight hours later, Megan experienced some complications. Soon, Megan Moss Johnson left her beloved husband and newborn daughter alone forever.
After hearing Megan’s story fellow Christian music artists of Nathan Johnson expressed their support for him. Nathan releases instrumental music under the name Meaning Machine. He has also played guitar for famous Christian artists like Grammy winner Francesca Battistelli and Mat Kearney. Megan’s husband Nathan is a talented, compassionate, cheerful, and industrious man who is trying to be both a mother and an excellent father to the little girl.
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.

Some ppl are born with very strange destiny…this is one among them. May God bless her daughter n hubby.
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!
