Seattle organ donor’s heart beats anew in Alaskan woman
When West Seattle resident Joel Eggert, 46, died last December in a motorcycle accident, his decision to be an organ donor became a life-saving gift.
Months later, Jennie Lawrence of Anchorage, Alaska, met Eggerts' family members to say thank you. She had been gravely ill when she received Joel Eggert's heart in a transplant at UW Medical Center.
