This inspirational young lady Bec Craven is a normal Gold Coast girl. Except she's had 3 hearts - 2 real and one bionic.

When she was in Bali in 2013 and returned back to the GC doctors thought she had pneumonia. It was 5 months later that they realised she was experiencing heart failure.

She needed a new heart and she needed it now there wasn't time to wait for a donar. So doctors booked her in to operate within that week.

It's bloody hot today 🌞🌩

They put a bionic heart in which has it's complications - was her body going to reject it, etc. But she pulled through and within that year a heart donar was found.

Bec got the heart she needed to be healthy and is feeling better than ever now.

So yesterday the 6th of January was a special milestone for me as it was my 1st birthday with my new heart! I cannot believe it's been a year already since I received the greatest gift you could ever get! What a rollercoaster journey I've been placed into, but what a wild ride it is! Life is so unknown. One day your over the moon and then next your down in the dumps but hey! At least I'm still here to share my story with you all! Near death experiences chance your whole out look on the world. You don't have any time for nonsense and you cherish the people and the things you love more because you don't know when it could be taken from you. So here's to all my wonderful family and friends that have been on this wild and woolly rollercoaster with me. I love you forever and ever ❤ . . . . #heart #heartransplant #1year #1 #1stbirthday #celebrate #milestone
