On Oct. 9, 2000, my husband received the gift of life from a loving, caring person a liver transplant. I was married almost 42 years to a wonderfully successful, humble man who cared deeply, gave freely, gentle and kind. We had six years together after his transplant. He had leukemia and died Aug. 20, 2006.
I am very thankful to his donor for the extra time we had together with our two terrific children and their delightful spouses and two wonderful, unique and gifted grandsons. April is Organ and Tissue Donor Awareness Month. Please take a moment to think about what you can do, save a life be a donor.
