Heart, Liver, Kidneys, and Intestine Donor/
November 6, 2022
I’m so proud of Zoie for choosing to be an organ donor. I only had her in this earthly world for 19 short years. But oh the love we have. My girl still lives in my heart and soul. I am thankful that in her death she was able to give life to others in need. Her heart, liver, kidneys, and intestines live on in others. It was very hard to lose my girl but seeing all the lives she saved, it makes my heart so full of awe. Zoie, we love you and miss you every second of every day. You are my hero and I’m so proud of you.
