SPOKANE, WA (KHQ) – An Idaho mom is on a mission to hear her baby’s heart beat one more time.
Back in August, Maliki Cheyney was put on life support after being left with the baby’s step-father. Police say that baby Maliki lost his life at the hands of his stepfather, who was arrested and charged with homicide.
When Maliki died, his heart was donated to another little girl who needed a heart.
Now Maliki’s mother, Dacia Cheyney, is trying to reach out and find the family in any way she can. There is also a Facebook page dedicated to helping Cheyney find the recipient of her son’s heart.
“That’s my only child’s heart and it would bring me a little more comfort to know that a piece of him is living on and helped another family be able to take their baby home,” she told KHQ. “I will drop anything and everything to do it even if it’s just for 30 seconds.”
