By mid-morning, Megan ” started having problems “. She dies a few hours later.

At the age of 15 years, this young woman, a native of Missouri, had contracted a virus which has caused a myocarditis, a heart inflammation potentially life-threatening. She had, therefore, received a heart transplant at the age of 23 years. An experience that she had shared in a book entitled “Megan”s Heart” (The Heart of Megan). A year after her operation, she had married her husband and had moved to Nashville. Eilee Kate had their first child.

Her husband, a musician, “is devastated,” said Josh Wilson, a friend of the couple. The latter has put in place a pool on the site GoFundMe to help the young man and his new-born.
