Loumonth Jack, also known as 'Abbey-Jack', is a Louisiana college student & is alive today because of donation. A heart attack at 20. Alive to see 21 + because of one woman's decision to save lives through donation. On Father's Day 2017, his heartbeat - his HERO's heartbeat - was heard around the world when 'Abbey-Jack' met his HERO's father.
That meeting became a story of hope spanning 6 continents, 18 languages, and was viewed over 100 million times. Crossing racial, religious and language barriers, that story inspired tens of thousands to register as donors.
Help keep the hope that is organ, eye and tissue donation on the international stage by voting for "Abbey's heart lives on"! Voting is open through Sept. 30th. #laureus
