Giving the Gift of Life: Organ Donor Month
April is Organ Donor Month and Angela Lambert shares her story:
On July 21, 2017, our world came crashing down when we got the call that my baby, the sweetest, most precious child, and my husband were involved in a tragic car crash that ended both of their lives way too soon. Kaitlyn Marie Lambert (pictured right), only 9 years old, passed away while my eldest daughter and I were holding on to her. Kaitlyn was such a sweet, caring, and loving soul who made sure she left a smile on everyone’s face.
“Do you want to donate Kaitlyn’s organs?” I looked at my two kids and sister who were standing by my side and my eldest daughter, Kelsey, nodded her head and said, “Yes, Mama. Kaitlyn made such a difference while she was here, why not let her live on?” Then I made the decision to donate my baby’s heart to save another child’s life and save the heartache and pain another parent might have to face.
