Patricia Tanner

My mother was a donor in January 2020. Her journey was special to her as she was also a kidney recipient about a year and half before she passed away.

She was a giver in life and was able to be a giver even after.

She inspired me and anyone she knew to never give up even in the face of adversity. It wasn’t easy for her but she endured it with grace and tenacity.

Talk with your family members and understand what they want in relation to organ donation. Even if you do not understand, follow through with their wishes; it is their last testament of who they are as a person.

Research and learn and determine if it works for you.
