Meet the Girl Behind the Viral Video of Her Emotional Reaction to Learning She’ll Receive a New Heart Aired October 14, 2016

Macey Wright of Sandy, Utah is just fourteen years old. She was born with a congenital heart defect that resulted in two open-heart surgeries by the time she was 11. Earlier this year, she got really sick and the doctors said she would need a heart transplant. Eight long months later, Wright received happy news (which her mom caught on video), and her reaction to getting a new heart went viral!

Today, Wright is still trying to regain her strength but she says she’s feeling great! Her message to all of us on this #FeelGoodFriday is to encourage everyone to sign up to be an organ donor. “They are the real heroes of this story,” says her mother Patrice.

To keep the good feelings flowing, we told our friends at Frigidaire about her emotional story and they decided to generously gift the family with all-new appliances including their Side-by-Side Refrigerator, the Freestanding Electric Range, and their Over-the-Range Microwave!

Here’s to a speedy recovery, Macey, and tons of fun cooking in your beautiful new kitchen!
