On August 10,1991 Judy Moneysmith was the first recipient of a heart transplant at Medical City Dallas Hospital, Dallas, Texas. She had stated that a donated organ is the gift that gives life and that the name of this organ transplant support organization should therefore be The Living Gift. This organization is created in the memory of Judy Moneysmith.
