MEGAN’S HEART, the story of Megan Moss Johnson's heart transplant journey, by Sharon Bushey, is being released and is on its way to us! If you would like to pre-order and get your copy asap, you can do that through our FB pages. MESSAGE Kathie Anderson Moss or Wayne Moss, give us your mailing address (we’ll send you back ours), and then you send an $18.98 check (snail mail, PayPal, however you choose). [includes shipping]

2-year check-up

June 14, 1012  Today Megan had her 2-year check-up after her heart transplant on April 18, 2012.  Initial results tell us that her body loves her new heart!  Her arteries are perfect, no blockage, there is no rejection!  More reports next week from the AlloMap testing.  Are we surprised?  Absolutely not!  God had a reason for saving Megan and we are watching to see how He continues to reveal His purposes for her.



Remember Dr. Wang, our favorite surgeon, who performed all Megan's heart surgeries? The following is his endorsement for the book that will be out this week!

Megan's heart story is the sum of medical science and technology integrated with the unyielding faith of her family and community. This spiritual path of her return to health and life is inspiring. As a part of Megan's team of health care providers, I am thrilled that others can share the Moss family's journey of prayer and faith to healing.

MEGAN HAS BEEN ASKED TO SHARE HER STORY AT THE NASHVILLE GO RED FOR WOMEN EVENT. KATHIE AND MY SISTER, SHAR, WILL BE JOINING HER AT THIS EVENT. PRAY THAT MEGAN WILL HAVE A CALMNESS AND BE ABLE TO SPEAK FROM HER HEART. THE FOLLOWING WAS SENT OUT TO ALL ATTENDEES OF THE EVENT TO INTRODUCE THEM TO THIS YEAR'S SPECIAL GUEST.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------We are so excited to host you at Friday's Go Red For Women Luncheon. Please take a moment to read about my friend Megan who I met this year while working on the Go Red For Women Campaign. I've also included information about a very special opportunity for us to join together to fight the No. 1 killer of women.

With heartfelt appreciation,

At age 15, Megan and her family were told that a virus had attacked Megan’s heart, causing serious, irreparable damage.
Little did she know how much worse it would get.

Seven years later, doctors recognized that the condition of Megan’s heart had grown dire. She was put on a transplant list. Although allowed to go home, Megan’s health continued to get much worse.

Two months later, after having surgery to be put on a bridge-to-transplant LVAD machine, Megan developed pneumonia.
Doctors told her family that even if a heart came Megan was too weak to receive it. Miraculously, an hour later, Megan’s white blood cell count came down, the fever dropped, and a heart became available. And so on April 18, 2010, Megan got a new heart.

Today, only two years after Megan’s heart transplant, she is a beautiful, vibrant, healthy young woman. She became a bride and was married this past fall, and Megan now permanently calls Nashville home.

When I met Megan, I wanted to thank her for sharing her story, for spreading the message about protecting your heart and helping people understand how important it is that we continue to fund lifesaving research to advance treatments for heart disease. I was overwhelmed and humbled by the sincerity and gratitude that she expressed to me and the American Heart Association for the very same thing.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------
We are praising God for another opportunity to share HIS MIRACLE story in the life of Megan.

Remembering....April 2010

Can't believe it has been two years.  Megan is doing great and doors are opening up for her to share her story in Nashville.  She will be in St. Louis for her two year check-up next week and her mom and dad are so looking forward to seeing her.  We are expecting a great report from the doctors and a good time of celebrating my birthday, Kathie's birthday, and Megan's HEART birthday.  Please continue to pray that the perfect job will open up for Megan in Nashville.  

Watch for the release of Megan's Heart by Sharon L. Bushey.  My sister has written Megan's story and should be in print within just a few weeks.  We will let you know where you can get a copy.  God is GOOD!

A word from Megan

Megan working through the 'Come what may...' As her father, I would ask that you pray for her to find a job in Nashville that one provides insurance, but mostly where she can use what she has learned through her experience to help others.
