On May 6, 2018 it will be ten years since our Jeffrey suffered head trauma in a fall and left us and became a hero. As an organ donor, he saved six lives. One of them is Caitlin Downey, now ten years old, who received part of Jeff's liver during transplant surgery performed at Boston's Children's Hospital. The medical miracle of organ transplant surgery has helped us and countless other families make sense out of personal tragedy. The compassion of the Downey family in finding us and sharing Caitlin's life and love with us is truly inspiring. On this tenth anniversary of Jeff's loss yielding life, we are commemorating the beautiful bond forged between the Powers and Downey families and Boston's Children's Hospital by participating in the Eversource Walk for Boston's Children's Hospital. We are fundraising as part of the Pediatric Transplant Center Team.
Please consider a donation to support us in remembering our Jeff and helping Children's Hospital and the families of transplant recipients in need. And please register as an organ donor.'m fundraising on behalf of Boston Children's Hospital because:
I BELIEVE no parent should experience the loss of a child.
I BELIEVE no sibling should have to watch their brother or sister suffer.
I BELIEVE that by investing in the best doctors and scientists we can save lives - today!
I BELIEVE that donations received before today helped a child I love and
I BELIEVE that every dollar I raise for Boston Children's Hospital will have a ripple effect and could be THE dollar that changes everything for a future family in crisis.
Please consider a donation to support my fundraising efforts... because I KNOW that when we band together WE WILL help fund Boston Children's exceptional care and groundbreaking research that can help every child.
