Good Mourning: The Many Faces of Grief – A PRICELESS GIFT EXCHANGE: ORGAN DONATION

It’s the holiday season and no matter which holiday it is for you, it’s time to celebrate and to give and receive gifts. But when your holiday may only be seasoned with grief, exchanging gifts may seem especially painful. Yet, there is one gift exchange that is so incredible, so profound that we need to share it.

Today we are going to talk about organ donation and visit with some very special guests: a couple whose son died in a horrific car crash and became an organ donor and a young, professional woman who was given a second chance at life with an organ donation. We are going to look at both sides of the equation…what it is like to be the family of an organ donor and what it is like to be the recipient of such a gift.
