“Knowing he’s alive because of Abbey, Abbey is alive inside of him—it’s her heart having him stand up straight,” Bill said. “I was happy for him and his family, and at the same time, I got to reunite with my daughter.”

After greeting each other like old friends, Jack pulled out a stethoscope and handed it to Bill so he could hear his daughter’s heartbeat again.

Both men cried as Jack’s friends and family surrounded them and watched as Bill listened closely to Abbey’s heart inside of Jack.

“She saved me and I can’t repay her. I wish I could but I can’t,” Jack explained. “All I can do is send my love to her family.”

The family made a recording of Jack’s heart so Bill could listen to it while he tackles the rest of his ride.

Bill and Jack spent a little while longer together, before they went their separate ways. Jack—onto living life to the fullest thanks to the miracle of Abbey Conner. And Bill onto his bike, where he hopes to continue sharing his daughter’s story and the importance of organ donation.

“It’s about not being selfish and burying things that could help people live or live better lives,” Bill said. “If you want a legacy—what better legacy could you have than to help people live?”

Bill meets his daughter’s heart recipient for the first time in the New Roads area after biking all the way from Wisconsin….
