A note from Lauren ***

I am honored to be thee Ambassador of Donate Life for my community. Spreading the importance of organ donation has become my new passion. I am one of the lucky ones who actually was able to receive an organ, my heart in time. This is not true for all. Currently, over 123,000 people are waiting, many with their lives on hold to hear those five life changing words, “we have found a match!” while others may never get that second chance, all due to a shortage of organs. Before I went through all I did, I never put any thought into organ donation. So now that’s why I am here to encourage others in becoming Organ Donors!

With sincere love & all my heart,

Lauren

Ambassador for Donate Life, NE

Living life again

This is my daughter Lauren.  A little under 2 years ago she had a heart transplant.

Look at her now.

She absolutely loves taking motorcycle rides.  Being confined in a hospital bed for a little over a year and a half, she loves the freedom she get when she takes a ride.  I was nervous about her getting on a motorcycle, but she is 25 and wants to experience all that life has to offer her now.  Plus we are very picky on whose bike she gets on.

Came across this picture and wanted to share.  Because someone was an organ donor, this picture was made possible.
