JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- A very special day Saturday for a young woman on the First Coast, who is meeting a family who forever changed her life.

Annie Ward, 19, got a heart transplant last year from a family just south of Gainesville who chose to donate their daughter's organs after she passed away.

Life Quest set up the meeting for tomorrow at 4 p.m. at the Landing, but Annie says she's worried there won't be enough time to thank the family for her gift of life.

"I just want to let them know how grateful I am, and how incredibly special this is to me, and how much it means to me. I'm going to live out Raven's legend, and never miss a second of it," Ward said.
