Celebrating Mother's Day with Donate Life


This post is sponsored by Donate Life, but the content and opinions expressed are my own.

This Mother’s Day, I have partnered up with Donate Life to share a story of about a mom and her son and the importance of organ donation. Below you can watch the video of a mom named Sandra and her son Nicolas: Nicolas was born with liver failure and, at only three months old, needed an organ transfer. The mom shared how was so worried that she wouldn’t find a match to get a transplant for her son. As a mom, I understand wholly the need to do ANYTHING you can for your kids. In a situation like that, you just wish you could reach into your body and give them whatever it is they need.

She eventually did find a match and, as you can see in the video, she shows so much gratitude that the donor essentially gave her son life. I think that the generosity displayed by a complete stranger and the gratitude this mom shared is so beautiful and so amazing. I was sharing my reactions looking at the video for the first time and I really felt for this mom: I put myself in her shoes and was tearing up at the thought of being her.

Organ donation is so important to me and I would love to shed more light on it. 

You can check out more information on DoneVida.org to become a donor. 

Happy Mother’s Day to all the mommas!
