A woman who recently received a heart transplant was reunited with her old heart, and candidly posed while holding it in her hands.

Penny,” as she’s known, can be seen grinning through the surgical mask she’s wearing while posing with the heart.

Penny’s friend Kelsey posted this image on her Imgur profile saying: “[Penny] is holding her own heart. She has survived cancer and crippling heart failure and never lost hope.”

Kelsey’s profile stated that Penny’s doctors allowed her to take a photograph with her old heart before it was cremated.

If it was me, I would’ve put the thing on my arm and claimed that “I wear my heart on my sleeve.” Hopefully, I’ll never have that opportunity.
