“I’m the guy that wasn’t supposed to survive,” said Ashworth.
The Rhode Island man nearly died on the operating table before receiving Kevin’s heart.
“It’s the gift that just keeps on giving,” said Ashworth.
Dave Kincman was also given a second chance at life, thanks to Kevin Sullivan.
Doctors gave Kincman just 48 hours to live.
He was in the same hospital, just a few doors down, when Kevin died.
He not only received Kevin’s liver and kidney, but also the entire Sullivan family.
“In story books and fairy tales nobody thinks you can have that happily-ever after ending, but I think in this case it absolutely was,” said Kincman.
According to the Department of Health and Human Services, 22 people die each day waiting for a transplant and one donor can save up to eight lives.
