Adam’s mom, Lisa, remembers exactly where she was standing when her son Adam brought up the subject of organ donation. When Lisa was faced with the reality of losing her teenage son, that conversation came back to her and she readily made the decision to donate Adam’s organs. Steve, who had been struggling with liver disease, was the recipient of Adam’s liver. He wanted to meet Adam’s family and thank them personally for making the decision to donate Adam’s organs. Lisa agreed and they arranged to meet. Steve was pretty nervous, not knowing what to expect. The nervousness left as soon as he met Lisa and she gave him a big hug. They have forged a very strong friendship and both are now involved in public education efforts, teaching students about the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation.
