Made Possible: Teen Blake’s Heart/Soccer (:60)


MY NAME IS BLAKE. I RECEIVED A HEART TRANSPLANT
WHEN I WAS TWO WEEKS OLD. I PLAY DEFENSE FOR
THE RED HOT TORNADOS. THE BEST PART
ABOUT PLAYING SOCCER IS THAT I GET TO
RUN AROUND AND HAVE FUN. JUST BECAUSE I HAD
A HEART TRANSPLANT, I DON’T EXPECT PEOPLE
TO TAKE IT EASY ON ME. I CAN STILL DO ANYTHING
THEY CAN DO. SOMETIMES MY HEART
STARTS POUNDING, LIKE, FASTER AND FASTER AS I GO. I KNOW I HAVE SOMEONE ELSE’S
HEART INSIDE ME. IT MAKES ME FEEL HAPPY BECAUSE
SOMEONE WAS GENEROUS ENOUGH TO GIVE ME A SECOND
CHANCE TO LIVE. I FEEL LIKE IT’S
MY RESPONSIBILITY TO LIVE EACH DAY TO THE FULLEST AND THE THING I
LOOK FORWARD TO THE MOST IS HAVING MY OWN FAMILY. ANNOUNCER: THIS GIFT OF LIFE WAS
MADE POSSIBLE BY AN ORGAN DONOR. IMAGINE WHAT YOU
COULD MAKE POSSIBLE. LEARN MORE AND SIGN UP AS
AN ORGAN, EYE, AND TISSUE DONOR. GO TO ORGANDONOR.GOV.
