Yesterday, I had the honor and heartache of experiencing an Honor Walk. It is a very moving experience and I hope that it becomes the norm for organ donors. My friend's honor walk is the first for the hospital and I hope they continue to offer them to the family.
This video is not my friend's honor walk to respect the family's privacy but is one shared with the approval of another organ donor's family.
This is a fabulous tradition! Our hospital works with One Legacy, some of us work on Rose Bowl Float (Donate Life)
and participate in sponsored walks. Thank you for sharing.....something for me to place in the “suggestion “ box.
Very grateful to the two families who made this decision. We receive updates from one legacy of successful placements.
Co-worker’s brother had heart transplant, another one’s brother a kidney.
We don’t have this tradition in England as far as I know. It would be so right to do this. For all those so brave families, friends and staff. It is beautiful (if that’s the correct word) So many people involved with organ, tissue and eye donation are so afraid of upsetting those families and friends. It would surely be a decision that they could make. After making such a difficult decision and going though the consenting and past medical history process. So soon after hearing their loved one has died. I watched this with a warmth of completion. After so many years as an Eye Donation Nurse.
May your friend rest in peace, may you in time also share your friends and their families peace.
