As CBS 2′s Carolyn Gusoff reports, she’s also hoping his death can save the lives of others.
From her laptop inside the Hempstead pool hall she owns, Yolani Veliz is on a mission.
“I think we need more information about organ donation and for that I open up website,” Veliz said Thursday.
She is trying to spread the word in the Latino community that organ donation saves lives. She’s started a website in Spanish – the Oscar Veliz foundation, named after her son, whose organs saved five lives.
