“Without the organ donor, there is no story, no hope, no transplant. But when there is an organ donor, life springs from death, sorrow turns to hope, and a terrible loss becomes a gift.”
Without my organ donor, both her story and my story, would have ended on 4/21/2008; her story at 17 and mine at 38.
her family who said yes to organ donation providing me with the incredible opportunity to live, for my story to continue and their daughter’s, their sister’s story to be told, to impact the lives of others, to even prevent like tragedy in the lives of others.
Because of my donor and her family, life sprang forth from death; sorrow gave birth to hope; a tragic loss became of a lifesaving gift.
I am and will remain, forever thankful…
