(Virginia) - At 17, Taylor found out she had an enlarged heart and her heart function dropped so low that she needed a new heart. Collin was born with a faulty heart. Collin already had one heart transplant, but his arteries clogged and he needed another one.
In 2011, Taylor & Collin ended up in the same hospital next door to each other waiting for their transplants. They did not know each other and really didn't leave their rooms because of what they were going through, but their families had often chatted with each other.
Fast forward 5 years later, Taylor & Collin reconnected and started a long distance relationship. Now they are engaged!
Two strangers, Taylor Givens and Collin Kobelja, received the same life-saving heart transplant back in June 2011. Neither had any idea they would be engaged to be married almost seven years later. https://t.co/adIqYxeBL6 #DonateLife #HeartTransplant #GiftOfLife— Donate Life CA (@DonateLifeCA) February 14, 2018
