Donor Medal of Honor Ceremony

Reesa was recently recognized with the Donor  Medal of Honor. The ceremony was held at The Westin Lake Las Vegas Resort & Spa and was sponsered by the Nevada Donor Network. Chris Klug (an Olympic Snowboarding Medalist and Liver Recipient) spoke. We also heard from Karen Brill, a donor mom and enjoyed listening to Claudia Crouse, a sopranist.

Ammon Kammerman came with me and helped set up the table of Reesa's momentos. We also enjoyed a catered lunch before the ceremony. As the ceremony commenced they had Reesa's picture and a brief description of her life in The Rememberance Book.

Reesa had just got her drivers license and had checked the box to be a donor. She was very adamant about being able to help others even after she passed away. Her Grandpa, John C Kammerman was also a donor.

Please consider being a donor if you haven't already made the decision. Then tell your family so they know what your wishes are. We never know when its our time and it would be a great thing to be able to help others and leave a legacy of love for others to follow.
