In this week's edition of Gift of Hope, we take a look at the story of a young man who decided he wanted to help others in the event of his death, which would prove to be a decision with far-reaching, positive consequences.

Hope Woodside spoke with Adam Osmond's mother, Lisa, about the impact Adam's decision to be a donor has made. Lisa said Adam specifically mentioned his desire to be an organ donor a few weeks before his death, and she said the knowledge that he has helped others heal has helped her heal as well.

    Lisa and Adam have affected countless lives. As recipients will tell you, their illness and later the transplant does not affect just them. Their families and friends are deeply affected and they are forever grateful for their donor. In addition, Lisa shares her story on a regular basis with middle school students to help them understand what organ donation can mean before they make that decision on their driver license. Thanks for sharing their story.
