Donor Profile: JoAnn

JoAnn’s Legacy Lives On

“My mom was truly one of a kind. She was the hardest working, most caring, selfless person I know. When she loved you, she loved you with everything and then some. There was standing room only in her memorial service. Everyone who met her was blessed to know her.

When I had kids of my own, they became her entire world. My daughter Addison still pats her heart and says, ‘my mom-mom’s here.’

When it came time to say goodbye, I knew without a second of hesitation that she would want to donate whatever she could to help others. I had to show my kids that during the darkest of times there’s still light, even if it’s light you make yourself.

Within 24 hours of her passing, I registered myself as a donor, and took my friend to the DMV to make sure she did the same.

My 7-year-old son Caleb said it best: ‘Two people can now see their loved ones through our loved one’s eyes’.”
