Carew's heart transplant came from ex-Ravens TE Reuland
It was revealed this week his heart is the one that's now beating inside former Minnesota Twin Rod Carew. "And I think your husband may have my son's heart and kidney".
A basketball star in his early teens, Konrad later began playing football and became the nations top tight end coming out of high school.
In a heartwarming feature that was published on the Baltimore Ravens' website, Carew spoke about getting the opportunity to meet Reuland's mother. "I will take care of this one because I've been given a second chance, and God knows how I feel and what I'm going to do for him", according to the Ravens' posting. Carew's family and Reuland's family will now team up to help the campaign. He spent two seasons at Notre Dame (2006 and 2007) before transferring to Stanford, where he finished out his college career before going undrafted in 2011.

Carew, 71, suffered the major heart attack while playing golf in Corona, Calif., on September 20, 2015. His condition worsened, and he moved to the top of the list on December 9, 2016.
The two families met on March 2, when Mary got to listen to Reuland's heart beat once again.
The only details the Carew family received before the transplant were that the donor was "male, late 20s, local, exceptionally healthy". She said it was a personal choice, but added she was signed up to be a donor.
Mary Reuland told the Ravens' website that she still remembers the day nearly 20 years ago that her son came home from school after meeting Carew.
She asked a doctor for the man's precise age and was told 29 (also Carew's uniform number).
The two men's blood classification was the same, however the key component was both were safe from Hepatitis B. Nobody in front of Carew on the transplant rundown was insusceptible. Rod was happily able to return home in late January, seven weeks after the transplant surgery.
Heart disease has touched the Reulands, too. Carew's family has for some time been joined as organ givers in memory of his girl, Michelle, who kicked the bucket of leukemia when she was not able get a match for a bone marrow transplant.
Interestingly enough, Rod didn't know whose organs he received, since the donor's family has to request that information in order to set up a meeting.
Konrad was only 29-years-old when he tragically died, two weeks after he suffered a brain aneurysm.
