Child Organ Donation & The "TV Good Luck Charm" • NewsMom
As I was walking into work, I saw a post on Facebook that piqued my interest. It was from a dad of an 8-month-old baby girl, in the hospital for more than three months waiting for a heart transplant. Ellie Lim was born with an enlarged heart, and the only way she would ever live a normal life was to get a new, healthy heart. In the post, Ellie's dad said that he had always tried to remain upbeat when sharing news of his daughter's condition, but this time, he wanted to be real and raw and tell everyone that, if people don't consider organ donation, including child organ donation, people like his daughter won't survive.
