125 Voices - Donna - Fifty Lives


Tissue Recipient

Almost 8 years ago I fell about 4 feet, shattering my Left knee into many pieces. After the bone healed, my ACL, although intact did not work anymore. For about 6 years I was having to continually have surgery to fix Miniscus tears due to not having the stability in my knee that I should have had if my ACL worked properly. I received a donor tendon in September of 2011 and have not had anymore tears in my knee since then. I have run in one 5K Mud Run already and I am getting ready to run in my second one coming up real soon. If not for the selfless act of donation I would not be where I am today.
A very BIG thank you goes out to all the wonderful people out there that make a difference in someone else's life everyday.
