The Complete Mission of Love
Diego will forever be in our hearts because of his passion, spontaneity and bravery.
He touched so many lives in our community that we will honor his legacy by bringing
awareness to organ donation, saving lives and families!
On June 30th, Diego, age 16, was involved in a tragic drowning, he battled for nearly a
week at St. Mary’s Children’s Pediatric Intensive Care Unit before answering God’s
call and becoming one of his angels. While at the hospital, it came to us, make a
positive from this devastating nightmare.
With the assistance of Life Alliance organ recovery agency we spoke to the mother
a young girl who received a donor gift about five years ago. After hearing the gift
not only saved the young girl, but an entire family it solidified our organ donation
decision. Although we weren’t as fortunate, we were able to answer the prayers of others.
Our brave decision to gift Diego’s organs, eyes & tissues to families in need of
these life-saving gifts made Diego, forever a superhero. And for us, our mission
became inspiring others as to the importance of becoming an organ donor…
save a life, save a family!
At least 3 people received life-saving organs, including his passionate heart and
both kidneys. His beautiful blue eyes as well as tissues helped many others.
Please join us in celebrating the cause and Diego’s heroism.
