As a donor family we have received so much comfort in the knowledge that our Linny’s organs have saved five lives. At her time of death we never would have thought something so beautiful could have come from something so tragic. Receiving a letter from one of her organ recipients was a real stand out moment for us in realising just how important organ donation is. As we read the letter it filled us with so much pride and made us feel like Linny was still there for us and helping others just as she always did.
We see her and feel her around us all the time, and knowing that parts of her are keeping others alive gives us a special connection to these people that will never go away. Organ donation means so much to us, as it has allowed for Linny’s story and path to continue without having her by our sides everyday.
