Hometown: Scottsdale, Arizona
Donor Family Member: Donor Mom
My Story: My 12-year-old son Michael Richardson was struck by a truck and left brain dead. I decided within five minutes to donate his organs. His heart, liver, kidneys, and corneas were donated. Donating his organs was the best decision I have ever made. Knowing he helped six people helped me deal with my grief.
My Message to the World: Please become an organ donor. Share your life... Share your decision. Transplant recipients are very healthy and happy human beings. Organ donation works. Take it from a donor mom.
