My Story: My son James at the age of nine was beaten up and he went into kidney failure. After 30 days his kidneys worked minimally for the next year and a half. Then they failed for good. He received a kidney transplant in April 1996 and three weeks later his intestines hemorraged and he passed away. His corneas were donated.

My Message to the World: Organ and tissue donation are very important. It gives life to those whose life is "onhold" and the change in the quality of life after a transplant is received is remarkable.
