The little princess thoroughly enjoyed her rock star status this morning at the First Annual Transplant Trot around Burnaby Lake. She even received a medal for being the youngest transplant recipient at the event. We were fully supported by Team Addison – thanks to all the family,friends and colleagues who came out to be part of the team. We forgot to get a team picture, but we’ll definitely remember next year.
It was inspiring to be surrounded by so many wonderful people who are part of the extended transplant family. We saw many familiar faces and a few new ones too. I’d like to share with you one very special story – Simone Harty is a donor mom. She donated her son’s organs after he was fatally injured in a motorcycle crash. Elliott was 17-years old. Click HERE to read the story in the Burnaby Now. We met Simone several months ago and we are so honoured to know her.
Please, register to be an organ donor and talk about your wishes with your family!
Elaine, Aaron and Addison
