“It’s a comfort to know there are heroes among us…”

I came across this greeting card at the Hallmark store today while doing some holiday shopping. Although I don’t have a specific person in mind to give this to, I bought it anyway because it applied so much to all of our amazingly generous donors; our everyday heroes. Enjoy, and have a safe and happy weekend.

About Lauren

Lauren Muskauski is the communications associate at The Living Legacy Foundation. She heads up many community outreach initiatives and projects, with a focus on middle school, high school and college outreach. She also manages The LLF’s and Donate Life Maryland’s presence on social networking sites, such as Twitter and Facebook. Lauren’s commitment to donation started early when she registered as an organ, eye and tissue donor at the MVA upon receiving her first drivers’ license, but was then reinforced a few years later when her father passed away while waiting for a liver transplant. Now, she continues to be inspired on a daily basis by the generosity of donors and their families, as well as the gratitude exhibited by every recipient she meets.

    Hi Lauren. My husband passed away 3 and a half years ago and was NOT a registered donor. I made that decision for him. If you ever want me to go with you to talk to High achool age kids about my experience about making that decision for someone else at such a tough time to try to make it,please let me know. I have thought about it for a long time about how important it is to make your own decision before something happens. I actually met one of my husbands recipients and know first hand the joy that a second chance can give.
    Thank you for all you do
