What was the last gift you gave? Did you pick it out with care and smile at the image of the intended recipient’s face? Who doesn’t love the anticipation of finding the perfect gift, wrapping it with love and waiting for that moment when it is opened. It’s one of life’s juicy moments … that crescendo of joy!
Now imagine giving the gift of life through organ donation to someone who really needs it. How does one make such an amazing choice? Well, I guess when it’s a close family friend and you feel moved to step up to the plate, it’s a choice worth making. That’s just what McKamy Tiner did when she donated one of her kidneys to her friend, Ian Arena. You can read about McKamy’s story, written by Dan Koller, here.
We applaud McKamy for her amazing gift and for being the light in Ian’s life in a spectacular and loving way! For information on registering to donate an organ, visit these websites:
