March Memoir Madness

In honor of March Memoir madness, I am posting a story from my book ‘Healing in the Storms’. The story is about my son Levi who was in a tragic car accident in 2007. My son’s eyes helped a six-year-old child see again. thank you for all the organ donors out there your family is special.


I have been in turmoil since friday afternoon,before the doctor and I made the final decision to withdraw life support. The Sight Life coordinator came in to Levi’s room to talk to me. The doctor told me they could only use Levi’s corneas because the rest of his organs were shutting down due to the infection throughout his body. he was in sad shape.

the doctor wanted me to sign the necessary paperwork. I went back to Levi’s room to spend the last few minutes I could with my son.

Something impressed me to go back and talk with the Sight Life coordinator. I told him ” I know you don’t usually say anything to the donor families, but would you tell them my son was 20,died in a car accident, and he would be honored that his corneas were going to help a six-year-old little girl?”

The doctor told me he didn’t talk to the families,but he would tell them what I said. When i was leaving the room, i heard the doctor say” you’re a neat mom.”

I went had to say goodbye to the most important person in my life. I wasn’t ready to let him go yet.
