My story: Kyle was born with hypo-plastic left heart syndrome which is a genetic birth defect. This was a terminal condition but this life was saved by recieving a heart transplant at nine days old. He has been a healthy, normal child with no major health problems.
My message to the world: Loosing a loved one is hard, but being an organ donor can be an extension of their life. Give "the gift of life". Give sight to a blind person or give life back to people with heart, liver or kidney failure. Be an organ donor that is the last gift you can give to people.
