Recently retired NFL tight end Greg Olsen had been looking for a heart transplant donor for his son, T.J., after it was made clear about a month ago that he would need surgery.
Exactly one week ago, Olsen revealed some awesome news. T.J. had found a match, and was all set for open heart surgery.

To share the one-week anniversary of the great news, Greg Olsen took to social media to reveal the heartwarming video of T.J. telling his two siblings that he had a match.
Exactly 1 week ago, the selfless act of a random stranger, our special angel donor, allowed TJ to share this news with his brother and sister.
Forever grateful 💚❤️

We also want to ask that everyone takes a second to pray for our donor family. Their selflessness during a tragic time gave our boy a chance at life. We don’t know who they are, but we will forever be grateful for everyday we get to have with Tj
❤️ Olsen Family

T.J. Olsen had been living with a modified heart for the first eight years of his life, but as Greg Olsen said, “that heart is reaching its end.”
Hopefully we can continue to receive good news from Greg Olsen, as T.J. Olsen resumes his long road to recovery.
