Organ donor recipients and friends are fulfilling donor’s bucket list

Learned about this story today, and wanted to share it with you. Kristina Chesterman died in a car accident last year, and donated her organs to many people, who are now (along with friends, family, other supporters) doing the things on her bucket list that she didn’t get to do, like fly first class.

The story caught my attention because she wrote a bucket list, with several things that are also on mine. I hope that the recipients, her friends, and her family are successful in accomplishing her list and in raising money for the memorial nursing scholarship and medical clinic in her name.

Read the article in the San Jose Mercury News. (Be sure to read to the bottom of the article to see her bucket list.)

    THIS IS CRAZY GOOD… and sad… and good… I road a camel in Egypt. It was scary, lol, but that’s because I’m afraid of heights. BTW, do you play chess, Shelly?

    This article reminds me of John 10:10 ❤

    Thanks for sharing, sis!
