We are thankful for YOU and so grateful for the support we receive that allows us to continue assisting families whose children are going through the life-saving process. .
We are also extremely thankful to everyone who has registered to be an organ donor or is a donor family and decided to give the gift of life. .
There is nothing more beautiful in this world than the gift of life. When you are surrounded by your loved ones today, consider talking about the gift of life and how you can one day make a difference. .
What are you thankful for?

A touching tribute to a man who agreed to donate his organs. The St. Luke's Hospital in Meridian, Idaho had medical staff, family, and friends line the walls of the hospital out of respect for the gift this man was about to give. Via Daily Mail.

Read about this year's Vancouver Island @MotorGathering in the DFF fall newsletter on page 7! The $100,000 donated to DFF will make a positive difference in the lives of families and children going through the organ transplant process. Link in bio!

A grief-stricken couple whose daughter lived for just nine days say they are proud that her tiny organs were able to help save the life of another baby. Jessica and Sampson Shnurman, from Iowa, were heartbroken when an ultrasound at 13 weeks showed their unborn child had a large fluid filled cyst at the top of her spine. Doctors told the couple their daughter, Lilah, was incompatible with life as the birth defect was preventing her brain stem from developing as it should. Jessica, 30, a surgical nurse, and Sampson, 31, a contractor, continued the pregnancy to term but asked doctors if Lilah might be a suitable candidate for organ donation. 6lb 5oz Lilah was born on 29 August, and her parents say seeing her open her eyes and cry was a precious moment. They hadn’t expected their baby to be born alive. They felt blessed that they were able to take her home, where she lived for nine days. Lilah passed away in her mother’s arms on September 7, but the valves of her tiny heart were donated through the Iowa Donors Network to help another baby. The infant's lungs were also donated to medical research at the University of Iowa and her parents say they feel privileged that their special daughter’s legacy will live on.
