BURLESON – The “Corey Car” is a poignant physical reminder of the late Corey Hudgins, a 2003 Burleson High School graduate many now regard as a hero.

His mother certainly does.

Hudgins was only 27 when he died during a tragic Fort Worth motorcycle accident in May 2013.

But two months before he died, the Mansfield resident signed the paperwork to become a donor to LifeGift.

LifeGift partners with more than 200 hospitals across 109 counties as the designated organ procurement organization for north, southeast and west Texas.
