An unidentified family saved a two-year-old boy's life after they donated a heart. Following six open-heart surgeries, the toddler is finally on the road to recovery. Here's the touching story of little Wyatt Lowe.


A saying by Anurag Prakash Ray goes: "life always offers us a second chance. It's called tomorrow. So do not give up against adverse circumstances and keep fighting."

This saying goes for a two-year-old boy from Bedford County, Virginia, named Wyatt Lowe, who got a second chance at life after surprisingly receiving a donor's heart.

The little child was born with several abnormalities, including a missing spleen, internal organ irregularities, a complex heart, and congenital heart disease.

Little Wyatt had undergone five open-heart surgeries. However, all efforts to restore his health proved abortive. As the days went by, his health grew worse, leaving his family heartbroken and traumatized.

However, at 9:50 p.m on August 19, 2021, the family received the greatest news ever. They were informed that a heart donor had been found for Wyatt.


The following morning by 11:00 a.m, the little boy went in for a heart transplant surgery, which was successful. After the surgery, Wyatt's mom, Kate, sat by his side, listening to the heart beating on its own.

Not only was Wyatt's surgery a success, but the toddler was also taken off of dialysis.

It was one of the best things she had seen in her life. Filled with emotions, Kate took to the Facebook group "Warriors For Baby Wyatt," which she runs, to share the good news.


In her post, Wyatt's mom revealed that the donor's heart was a perfect match, and it was beating on its own. According to her, her son was off bypass and monitored for a few hours to ensure that no bleeding occurred.

While giving an update on her son's health, Kate did not fail to thank the donor family for saving her little boy's life. She wrote:

"Thank you to the Donor family, I have had you on my mind all day. Your selfless act of giving the gift of life in your time of sorrow. I am so sorry[...]"


Not only was Wyatt's surgery a success, but the toddler was also taken off of dialysis. His organs are in recovery, and Kate could not be prouder of her son for his strength and resilience. She said:

"I am amazed every single day. Wyatt is so resilient. My hero."

Wyatt's story remains a reminder and source of encouragement to many out there going through difficult situations. Like the little boy, prove to be a warrior by putting up a fight, regardless of the situation.
