What can be sweeter than the love of a grandfather for his precious grandchild? The bond is so strong that it can be captured by the camera. And when you add an inspiring backstory to the mix, then the photograph becomes even more powerful.

The grandparent and baby in this photo are both fighters--and heart patients. Brandy Gregware, of Spartanburg, SC, posted the photo and wrote that for 12 years, her dad has had "two open heart surgeries, 18 stents, a pacemaker,...massive stroke, too many to count mini heart attacks and has 10% heart function." Her son Kolbie, who has Down syndrome, is only 10 months. But he had open heart surgery at 4 months to fix a heart defect and has spent 7 months in the hospital thanks to a host of other health issues.

"My dad just sits and holds Kolbie for hours and they chat about their matching zippers!" Gregware writes in the caption, adding that she'll cherish the photo of her two fighters forever.
