Watch Amazing Moment a Transplant Recipient Ran Into the Donor's Family

A woman named Savannah hates baseball but she still went to see the St. Louis Cardinals game on Sunday because it was Transplant Awareness Day.

She was there with her family to honor her brother Donovan who died in an accident three years ago. But because he was an organ donor, he saved several people's lives.

During the game Savannah and her siblings had just posed for a photo when a woman walked up and asked if they were Donovan's family.

It turned out she'd seen the t-shirts they were wearing with his picture on them and she recognized Donovan . . . because her father got his HEART.

65-year-old John Sueme had been in heart failure for five years before the transplant. And he was ALSO there for Transplant Awareness Day with his family.

Watch what happens when they meet.

He'd never met anyone in Donovan's family before. The only contact they'd had was a letter where John wasn't allowed to reveal his last name. But he knew who Donovan was, and he'd seen pictures.

There's a pretty emotional video of Savannah and her family members hugging John one by one, and listening to his heartbeat. John says even he gets chills every time he watches it.
