CHERYL AND STEPHANIE
LINKED BY OUR CHILDREN, JOIN THROUGH A KIDNEY
When Cheryl’s daughter died after a tragic car accident, Cheryl and her family chose organ and tissue donation for her. Her healthy heart saved the life of a family acquaintance. Years later, Cheryl met another donor mom, Stephanie. When Stephanie lost her son, she knew he would have wanted to be an organ donor. Cheryl and Stephanie became great friends, even attending the Transplant Games of America together. When Stephanie’s kidney began to fail, it was no surprise that Cheryl would donate a kidney to her. The pair found out they were a match, and now they work together to share their touching story of organ donation.
