My Beautiful Daughter telling a tragic story

After the tragic loss of my 18 year old son 21 months ago my beautiful daughter submitted her story to DONATE LIFE.
It was accepted and the book has just been published.
Have a look at the many stories, some good and some not so good. 
Please consider becoming an organ donor in the hope that others can live after another has passed.
Yes, it is an extremely hard decision but because of my son and our families decision there are 6 other families out there that have a much better lifestyle now.




 My little brother, my big hero

  5. I will look later as like Shez not sure I will be able to read it without buckets of tears. Wonderful that John helped so many people and a part of him continues. I hope that gives you some peace. We couldn't do this with CJ but as you know DD2 has been helped by selfless families like yours.

  6. It a programme I believe strongly in...so of course my family and I are down as donors. I always used to say that if one of my children was in need I would truly appreciate the gift of life someone else had given me... so of course I want to do the same.
    What a wonderful "good" thing to come from a tragic event. Hugs xox

  7. Jo my heart goes out to you......having only one child myself, a son, I couldn't imagine the loss you must feel, but knowing that he lives on in others (as well as in your hearts) is a wonderful legacy. I have my name on the donor list....can't think of anything more worthwhile.
    big sugary hugs xoxo Wendy :o)

  10. Kirsty's tribute is just beautiful - her big hero. It's one decision we all pray we never have to make but what strength you have as a family to make that decision and to give that gift to total strangers. A little bit of positivity out of tragedy. Big hugz xxx
