The Gift of Life
Laura’s Gift of Life Story
Ten years ago Trish received Laura’s liver, and today she’s living a healthy life because of Laura’s gift. This powerful video (created by the BloodCenter of Wisconsin and viewed more than 10,000 times tells our families’ intersecting stories.
Laura’s Life and Legacy
Laura was an “old soul” yet young-at-heart. She engaged in adult conversations as much as she played dress-up with her two younger sisters. An academically-motivated student, she enjoyed writing creative stories, hanging out with friends, and sketching dress designs; she had an unwavering desire to be editor-in-chief of a fashion magazine. In her all-too-brief but meaningful life, Laura inspired friends and family by her desire to help others, and we believe Laura would have been pleased to know that she saved another person’s life.
