On July 27, 2017 at the young age of 28, my daughter Brittany became an organ donor. She registered as an organ donor just 4 months prior. She was married but did not have any children. She loved her pets, a dog and cat. She had a younger sister and 2 younger brothers. She always had a feeling that she should be doing "more" in her life. In the end, she did do "more". She was able to "Make Life Happen" for 4 others.
The gift of organ and tissue donation is an act of quiet heroism. The memories of our Heroes are treasured. This Hero Stories Blog is for cherished memories submitted by the families of these Heroes.
A place to honor and to remember individuals that have saved and enhanced lives.
