My mother was the most exuberant, generous and positive person. She was a friend to everyone. Her motto was live life to the fullest–“while I am here, I will live”.
Her beautiful smile, vivacious way of life and her giving ways made it easy to donate her right kidney, left kidney and pancreas, liver, heart and retinas. To know she’s living through someone else and who she’s given a second chance at life warms my heart and makes life a little more tolerable.
She saved a person with her lungs and 2 others with a kidney each. Her tissue and corneas were also donated. I love that she lives on in others and this was her wish.
If Camryn could have helped..she would and so we did. She saved 8 lives. My daughter is a hero.
Lovely Lady Linda although was 8 months old when leaving this earth. Her organs live on in another.
Each year on that Oct 19th anniversary day, I write another thank you letter detailing how their brother’s heart is still touching so many lives through my own life’s activities thanks to their sharing his heart through organ donation.
