Organ donation recipients celebrate with family of donor


BURLINGTON, Mass. - This weekend marks 1,001 days since 31-year-old Kevin Sullivan died after he fell off a ladder while at work. And it’s been 1,000 days since he gave the ultimate gift, the gift of life.

Kevin’s family celebrated with the three organ recipients, who are now considered family, at their Burlington home. They called it their ‘1,000-day party.’

Dave Sullivan’s 31-year-old son Kevin lives on through little Julian Molina-Cortero, who’s full of life.

Julian received one of Kevin’s kidneys after Kevin was killed in a tragic accident two and a half years ago.
“We wonder sometimes if it was all part of some plan,” said Dave.

Kevin’s organs were donated to Julian, who was 22 months old at the time. He also saved the lives of two 50-year-old men, including Mike Ashworth. Video, continue reading
