Blood donation and organ donation


Recommended Posts

Yes we were able to donate Chris' eyes and some tissue. I never brought it up to the dr's because I thought with the cancer, chemo, etc. he couldn't have done it.

Chris passed away at 3 in the afternoon. I received a call from the New England Organ Donor Bank, that the hospital had called them. The hospital had checked and his eyes were transplantable.

When that transplant team came, they noticed that there was tissue that was usable. So they called in that transplant team. I had given permission for them to take whatever they could use.

We were asked if we wanted to know who Chris' eyes went to and we said no, it was enough to know that those baby blues would be helping someone.
