Katie Wolford Reitter's page in memory of Matty Wolford
My family and I are teaming up with Donor Network West to raise awareness about the need for organ, eye and tissue donation at the 8th annual Donate Life Run/Walk! This event will celebrate those touched by donation and honor the donors who have given the gift of life like my little brother Matty.
Matty gifted three vital organs to three people in need. In no way would I ever wish for this outcome of Matty's life. I'm heartened to know he saved lives. The Donor Network staff were nothing but kind and gentle at the hospital while we painstakingly awaited Matty's last day on Earth.
Funds raised from the Run/Walk help provide education on organ, eye, and tissue donation through community outreach, research, clinical events and our annual Donor Family Gatherings. Each person touched by Donor Network West’s public education campaigns, who then registers as a donor, has the potential of saving 8 lives through organ donation and improving another 75 lives through tissue donation.
It’s easy to make a difference – just click the button to the right to make a donation. Any amount helps the over 11,000 people waiting for a life-saving transplant in Northern California and Northern Nevada.
I hope you will join me in building a future where all those waiting for a transplant receive their second chance at life.
Katie, Jane & Dale
