Kaden\'s Blood Day
Organ and blood donation is not a topic that most people think about very often. However, for others, it is something that crosses their mind every day.
Kaden, my younger brother, was killed one year ago today when he lost control on loose gravel while driving my car, and rolled into an embankment. He died in Nepean Hospital as a result of severe head injuries.
Kaden had marked on his drivers license that he would like to donate his organs should he be in a position to do so. Because his organs were undamaged by the accident, he was able to donate. Kaden donated his heart, liver, both lungs, both kidneys and his pancreas to people who needed them, and in doing so, saved five lives.
Please, think about Kaden
