16th Annual Dash for Organ & Tissue Donor Awareness: 2011.

Tomorrow my son and I will be participating in a walk called the Dash for Organ & Tissue Donor Awareness taking place in my hometown: Philadelphia. We are participating in the walk with a good friend of mine who I basically grew up with since we were in diapers—and her family. The reason we are walking is in memory of a loved one my friend and her family lost—her brother; Jackie McCarron who was only 30 years old at the time of his death. Their eldest sister stated, “This Sunday, April 17th is the Dash for Organ & Tissue Awareness walk/run beginning @ the Art Museum of Philadelphia. My brother Jack donated his organs on April 13th, 2009. He saved 5 lives with his choice to Give the gift of Life. Come out for Our Knight In shining Armor. Our team name is Jack’s Knights.” I am more than happy to be a part of this walk to help keep his memory alive; for he was a tender-hearted, optimistic, loving, caring, amazing person. I am also doing this to help support this family who has been holding up so strong and courageous. Although their hearts ache every single day knowing that he is not here on earth anymore, I am sure his spirit and energy is surrounding them every single day, protecting them; for he is their Angel up above…. In Loving Memory of Jackie McCarron <3
