Life after Loss: Anthony's Story

Being a donor family, we were approached by Gift of Life and asked to take part in their awareness campaign to help dispel some of the myths behind organ donation. We felt strongly about helping others understand what it means to be an organ donor, and how it can help those who have no other options available. The experience of being a donor family has been beautiful. Knowing that Anthony lives on in the lives he saved has given us hope and helped us tremendously as we heal and face our new normal. Many thanks to Gift of Life for sharing our story to help others realize the importance of being an organ donor.

Donor Mom, Melanie Penna, shares the story of her son, Anthony who in his passing gave the gift of life to others. His legacy lives on in the hearts of those who loved him and now even those who never knew him.
