The Sun-Times ran an excellent cover story yesterday about Rockford heart transplant recipient Brian Troy who had the unique opportunity to meet his donor’s family last month.
Rockford Heart Transplant Recipient Meets Donor’s Family
I had the chance to meet Brian last April at Secretary of State Jesse White’s press conference announcing his annual commercial touting organ/tissue donation, which features Brian. It was amazing to see how grateful Brian is for having a second chance and great to see that his donor’s family has found some peace in knowing how their son helped save the life of another human being.
