Woman Donates Daughter’s Heart To Best Friend

Sometimes something positive can come from a tragedy. Two Chicago women who are best friends now have an even deeper bond.

Vickie Smith’s 18 year old daughter Nikki drowned back in June.   Vickie agreed to donate the college freshman’s heart to her best friend Tanesha who was on the donor waiting list.

Tanesha and Nikki were a perfect match. They were both B positive,with the same antibodies and even the same size heart.

Now Vickie and Tanesha are being featured in a new public service announcement.  It talks about the importance of organ donation.   To learn more about organ donation just go to . http://www.organdonor.gov.
