Forever A Hero!

"What can I do to help you?", Chris would ask you. 
"I was a 44 year old supportive husband and loving father of 2 beautiful little girls. I became passionate for organ donation a long time ago when I learned of my best friend being a living donor to his sister. I then became an advocate for several years after supporting my wife during many tragic losses. Two years ago, I went to the Transplant Games of America to honor and celebrate the life of my wife's mother. Not long after the games, I kissed my wife goodbye and went to work. Suddenly I collapsed from a heart attack and was unable to be resuscitated. Now I leave behind my family legacies and my donor legacies."

As a proud wife, I can honestly thank him for teaching me to live each day as it is my last and to help the ones I can!
