The family of Christina Taylor Green, the 9-year-old girl killed in the Tuscon shootings a little more than a week ago, made the selfless decision to donate her organs after she passed away. The Donor Network of Arizona recently told the family that Christina’s corneas saved the eyesight of two children. It is unclear whether other organs have been successfully transplanted, but the family is comforted by what they know of the donations so far.
The family could have turned inward to grieve and no one could blame them for doing so. Instead, while grieving, they thought of others and made the decision to donate. We should all consider this option and make it happen if we see fit.
