Sophie's story – donor, QLD

Of course we would donate. Sophie always wanted to help people!

When 10-year-old Sophie grew her angel wings in 2016, her family didn’t have to think too long about giving the gift of life to others. In fact her mum Karina said it took about 30 seconds for them to decide.

“Of, course we would donate. Sophie always wanted to help people!” she said.

In fact, the last words young Sophie wrote on her whiteboard in her bedroom were “live life peacfuly (sic)”.

“She had a beautiful spirit and caring nature, so we knew this was something she would want to do,” Karina said.

“Knowing Sophie’s generous donation has enabled many people to live a fulfilling life, warms my heart.”
