Amy, Donor Mother

There is nothing more devastating than losing a child. But in the midst of her loss, Amy made a decision that ultimately saved many lives. Amy’s daughter Nicole, donated her heart, liver and kidneys to people in severe need of a lifesaving transplant. Because of this generous gift, numerous people were given a second chance at life.

Mandee (click here for a photo) is one of those who was given a second chance at life as a result of Nicole’s gift. Mandee had suffered from a congenital heart defect since birth. But after receiving Nicole’s heart, Mandee now has a new lease on life. In 2003, Mandee was a bridesmaid in Nicole’s sister’s wedding.

“Donor Alliance… was there for our family during our grief and they serve as a support to us today. I feel that I too am living again since Nicole’s death. Knowing Nicole saved so many lives through her gifts, I feel such peace and calmness and in my heart.”

Now, Amy honors Nicole’s gift by displaying Donate Life license plates!
