DEAR EDITOR:

I want to say “thank you” to a very special organ donor who in November 1997, allowed me to be alive today!

I received a heart transplant at the Cleveland Clinic. I will always remember the day my donor’s little sister asked if she could hear her brother’s heart beating in my chest. I will never forget the big smile and happy tears on the face of that 11-year-old younger sister. She just hugged me and said Aaron, her brother’s name, and looked up and smiled.

Have you considered being an organ donor? You could help to give the gift of life to another. Thank you for considering it.

Bob Grothouse
