Watch This Mom Listen to Her Daughter’s Heartbeat One Last Time. It’s So Powerful It Left These News Anchors in Tears

On March 15, 2010, Todd and Tara Storch tragically lost their thirteen-year-old daughter, Taylor, in a ski accident in Colorado. Despite the unimaginable grief, the couple made the selfless decision to donate Taylor’s organs, including her heart, which was transplanted into Patricia Winters, a 42-year-old nurse and mother of two from Arizona. After a relative posted the connection on a transplant website, the Storches reunited with Winters and experienced the powerful ripple effect of their brave decision. Inspired, they wrote the book Taylor’s Gift (Baker Publishing Group, $15.99) to spread awareness of the beautiful gift organ and tissue donation can be.

Patricia Winters, a 42 yearold labor and delivery nurse and mother of two, felt a deep connection with the Storches family after receiving a lifesaving heart transplant from the teenager.Now I can walk, breathe, pick up my boys at school, Winters expressed.I have a tomorrow because of Taylor. She further noted that her bond with the Storches family is strong, and when it comes time to leave them, she feels a deep ache inside.It is so hard to explain, Winters said.There is so much to our relationship. As a parent, you never want to feel what Tara feels. If my childs heart was in her body, I would want the same closeness that we have together.
