Donate Life Float: 2016 Floragraph Honoree- Lyndsey Christine Nelson

Donate Life Float

Lyndsey was the youngest of three girls, born January 20, 2006. She was a vibrant and loving baby girl who was always caught smiling. On May 7, 2007, Lyndsey was found unresponsive in a pond. On May 8, she was pronounced brain dead. Dozens of family members and friends visited her PICU room to say their goodbyes. When approached about the opportunity to donate, Lyndsey’s mother, Jamie, knew that if the roles were reversed, she would want someone to help her child. Lyndsey donated her kidneys, liver, and two heart valves to save a 36-year-old woman, a 3-year-old boy, and two baby girls. Lyndsey’s life was short, but her contributions to the world were great.

You can dedicate a rose to be put on the Donate Life Float. Visit website to learn how.
