Lifeline of Ohio community
Strands of lights, festive carols, presents and time spent with friends and family are all ways people across the country ring in the holidays. But this Season of Giving, Lifeline of Ohio is asking you to consider registering to give a greater gift: The gift of life.
For one Columbus family, whose 9-year-old son is waiting to receive the gift of life, the holidays are uncertain. Sam Williams is currently one of the more than 120,000 people waiting for his life-saving transplant - his a pancreas, liver and small bowel. As he waits, Sam’s still a normal boy who loves playing outside, drawing his favorite characters, bike-riding and skateboarding. Mom Mallory says she plans to take time this December to give thanks to her community for supporting her little boy.
