My Story

10 years ago, my dad received a new heart. I never thought something so terrifying and stressful could turn out to be so beautiful. I remember sitting in the hospital room and not recognizing the man in front of me. Because of my dad’s donor, Matthew, I got to see my dad walk my sister down the isle. I get to sit in comfortable silence with my him while we read together. We’ve had many father daughter days that I will always cherish. We would call Matthew’s mom often and talk like we’ve always known each other. We truly did gain more family from this. Now, we go to hospitals and schools and show the importance of being an organ donor. We show them the love that is on the other side of such a scary event.
