My daughter, Laci Michelle Taquino was a very active and outgoing 15-year old who was known for her humble and quiet personality. She was a dancer, a cheerleader, and maintained a 4.0 GPA as an honor student at Comeaux High School. In August 2006, Laci passed away suddenly from a massive intracerebral hemorrhage caused by an undiagnosed Arteriovenus Malformation (AVM). It was then, that our family faced the difficult decision of organ donation. Thankfully, Laci and I had a discussion about organ donation just one month prior. It was a conversation I didn’t want to have or even think about, but today, I am so thankful for it! When faced with the decision to donate Laci’s organs, I knew her wishes! Laci saved the lives of six people.
