Why I do What I do
What fuels you the most? For me, it's family, friends, love, and compassion. But what really fuels me the most is spreading awareness about Organ donation. Becoming a registered organ donor was one of the best decisions in my life that I have ever made because I know that I will save a life one day...and so can you
However, my passion could have never even started without my own heroes who have inspired me. My older brother, Joseph, was diagnosed with diabetes at the age of 10. Diabetes occurs when the body cannot properly break down foods into sugars. Being diagnosed with diabetes had flipped his world upside down. Not just for him, but for my family and me as we watched him struggle with this physically, emotionally, and mentally. I would hope to never see this day but if there is ever a time when he is in need of a pancreas, I don't want him to suffer waiting for one. As a sister, I want to be sure that there will be an organ donor, willing to save a life. I want to know that I did the best of my ability to make the world a better place in at least one way. And that one way is saving lives because I believe life is too precious.
