Our son Troy, aged 33, contracted streptococcal meningitis through a simple earache.
Within 48 hours we were informed that Troy was brain dead.
The decision to donate his organs was made easier for us as we knew that Troy was a passionate organ donor who thought it would be a great idea for his dad and mum to become donors as well. Troy was always coming up with great ideas!
Troy's whole family and large circle of friends were devastated by his untimely death, but knowing that Troy was able to give seven people a better quality of life helped ease the pain of losing him.
We exchange cards via DonateLife with several of Troy's recipients. We are always happy to receive news of their progress and how their lives are going.
