Video honors organ and tissue donor Melissa Thomas
Though she battled multiple health issues, Melissa Thomas never wavered in her desire to be an organ and tissue donor. And when she passed away, she was able to help dozens of people, including a patient who received her liver in a lifesaving transplant.
“Melissa was always wanting to help people, to fix the situation, to find the answer to a problem, even if it meant maybe not the best outcome for her,” Mary Kay said in the video. “To save someone’s life was the ultimate gift.
“When I think of my sweet Melissa, I immediately think of the gift to mankind. It gave her life such purpose.”
Melissa was a member of Superior HealthPlan and registered to be a donor with the Texas Organ Sharing Alliance.
