Wife of donor meets the man saved by her husband’s heart


Art Chavez suffered a heart attack in 2016, later finding out from doctors that only 10 percent of his heart was working and he needed a transplant. In 2017, his world changed thanks to Kristen and Tim Cooper. Tim died suddenly in his home that year and, though he wasn’t a registered organ donor, Kristen connected with the Southwest Transplant Alliance to help give Tim’s heart to Art. Megyn Kelly TODAY follows Kristen and Art as they meet for the first time three months after the surgery, forming a bond over this live-saving gift.
