Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
When a compatible donor is found, track-star Katie O'Roark undergoes transplant surgery to receive a new heart. And although she feels fortunate to have gotten this anonymous gift of life, Katie wonders if she will ever be strong enough--physically and emotionally--to become a winner again. You don't know me, but I know about you. I can't make you live longer, I can't stop you from hurting. But I can give you one wish, as someone did for me. Katie O'Roark feels miserable, even though she knows she's incredibly lucky to have received an anonymous gift. Still, the money can't buy her a new heart or bring her back to her track-star days. When a donor is found with a compatible heart, Katie undergoes transplant surgery. While recuperating, she meets Josh Martel and senses an immediate connection. When Katie decides to start training to attain her dream of running again, Josh helps her meet the difficult challenge. Will Katie find the strength physically and emotionally to live to become a winner again?
