“Organ donation saved our daughter’s life”

Starcie Demay, Liver Recipient, 2010

"Organ failure was a death sentence for our little girl and it nearly destroyed our family. But through the unimaginable sacrifice of another family in their greatest time of sorrow, organ donation saved our daughter’s life. What most people do not know is that it also saved our lives as well and it impacted us in a way that will leave us changed forever. The great big miracle that is our daughter’s life did not come about by chance. It was the love, dedication, and sacrifices of many people; it was small individual miracles all adding up to one enormous outcome. Organ donors, with their tremendous acts of generosity, begin a chain of events that inspire goodness in all the lives touched by their gift. Thank you, from the bottom of our hearts, for registering to be a donor." ~From the parents of little Starcie, Jason and Andi
