The 15th birthday party is a very important tradition for girls throughout Latin America, regardless of where they live. At her party, Monique was dazzling and very pleased. She lives with her family in Benavides, Texas. 10 years ago the family suffered a tragedy. Monique’s brother, Mickey, died in a car accident and since then, she has missed him a lot.
The parents didn’t want his death to have been in vain and they decided to donate his organs.
Thanks to this they saved the life of an 8 year old girl, Aubrey Reeves. Aubrey suffered from a congenital heart disease and her body had previously rejected two transplants. But her body accepted Mickey’s heart and kidneys. Today she is a completely healthy 18 year old.
The donation was done anonymously, so Mickey’s parents didn’t know whose life they saved. However, 10 years later, they found out the name of the girl and as a surprise to Monique, decided to invite her and her mother to the party.
Aubrey and her mother traveled 10 hours to meet and thanks the family that had saved her life. At the beginning Monique didn’t suspect a thing, but afterwards, her parents revealed that her brother’s heart was there in the room and the girl broke into tears.

Aubrey and Monique said they became sisters at first sight and Aubrey promised her she would always be able to count on her. The family lost a son, but somehow established a special connection with the other family forever. Don’t miss the video of the emotional surprise!
