Kinney, MN (Northland's NewsCenter) - But for one Iron Range family a decision following the death of their daughter gave life to another child hundreds of miles away.
About two years ago, five year old Audrey Erickson of Kinney was hospitalized after her parents saw symptoms of something very wrong.
They would soon learn just how wrong.
"It took like 48 hours for the tests to come back so they started throwing all this antibiotics at her. They found it was gram-negative pseudomonas meningitis...which is the worst meningitis you can get," said Krista Erickson.
One of Audrey's brothers voiced his idea that donating his sister's organ's could help save someone elses life.
