Phoenix girl who received heart transplant has died

Girl who underwent heart transplant passed away after complications.

PHOENIX - A young girl whose family has shared her story several times on 12 News has died, according to her family.

Jordan Drake received a heart transplant a couple years ago when she was 18 months old after doctors discovered a faulty heart valve.

The heart came from 7-month-old Lukas Clark, whose mother, Heather, was able to hear her son's heart beat in Jordan's body last year.

Jordan's health had deteriorated over the last several months, and eventually her body rejected the heart, according to posts from her parents on a support Facebook page.

To support the Drake family, you can go to their GoFundMe page.
