“My mother was an amazing woman. She cared about people throughout her life. She always put others before herself. Mom suffered from multiple medical conditions which resulted in a hard life for her over the last several years. Whether it was dealing with diabetes or Alzheimer’s we had talked about the desire for more medical research done to help. Being able to donate her body to medical research allowed mom to help others even in her own death. It was her one last way of putting others before herself. Watching her go through her ups and downs was the hardest thing our family has ever done. Knowing that with her donation hopefully soon other families will not have to go through what we did makes the process somewhat easier.” -Mitzi G.
