Patrice's Story of Hope

“My family members have known the heartache of loss and the bliss of renewed life. Any time I can share information about organ, eye, and tissue donation - I am happy to do so, knowing it could save a life." ~ Patrice
When Patrice Hudson Ball says that she believes in organ, eye, and tissue donation, she means it. With her uncle, Rick Pfenning, being a heart recipient and her aunt, Glenda Usinger, being a tissue donor, organ and tissue donation has always been important to her family. But then, Patrice’s younger sister, Bobbi, learned she would need pancreas and kidney transplants.
