Honoring Abigail and Anna: A donor family’s journey
Susan and Tom Robinson lost their daughters, Abigail and Anna, in a tragic accident, but found joy when Abigail was able to donate her organs to save other lives. The Robinsons have become tireless advocates for organ donation by sharing Abigail’s story and educating the public about organ, eye and tissue donation through their organization Love Rocks.
I‘m thankful I have a chance to give back and educate about transplantation.
Since I received my new kidney, my life has been restored; and I feel that I’ve had a second chance at life.
I chose to donate to a man I never met because Jesus didn’t just die for and sacrifice himself for those in his inner circle. He died for everyone; even those who don’t know him.
I’m so grateful for the donor and grateful that I have the chance to live a second life, to take back my life that I deserve.
Transplanted organs give you a second lease on life and allow you to breath without the constant thought of how your illness will prevent you from enjoying your time.
Since I received the gift of life for the second time, I’ve made it my purpose to give back to my community.
I’ve always been registered as an organ donor but I never dreamed that I would be on the receiving end.
“We have found joy in the decision that I know Abigail would’ve made herself.”
Paul was so grateful for the life saving organ donations that extended his life.
I promise my children will always know their hearts beat for two and I hope we make you proud.
I fought hard, but everyday the fight became harder, until I received a referral for a transplant evaluation.
I will keep fighting for my life and everyone else who goes through this to help them learn to have a healthier life.
