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.

    My daughter Bridget Diveley, March 7th 2010. This will be her one year anniversary since receiving a heart. She is a healthy 3 year old!

      That’s great, Scott! We just read Bridget’s story on the telethon website for The Children’s Hospital at Johns Hopkins last week – she is a beautiful little girl! We’d love to have her join Team Maryland if you guys are interested – the little ones are always the most fun to watch!

    Silly me… as I read these happy anniveraries, I just started to get teary-eyed! You really GET it when you see the milestones each one has marked, and the remarkable miracle of LIFE! We are a blessed bunch, in that I think we get to greet each day with a newness & anticipation that gets lost sometimes in the mundane of *everyday-ness*…

    Happy Anniversary to everyone! May you all enjoy your improved heath everyday.

    It has been 3 years this March 28 for the 7 recipients of our son Chris’ organs. Everyone is doing great! We are proud of our son for being a hero to so many.
