“Comforting Words Give Hope and Can Make a Difference”

Educate each other the truth about which organs and tissues can be donated and what the impact it will have on their families. In her book, Ruppel shares stories including that of her family’s experiences with life saving donations and in 2008, was first impacted by organ donations after her daughter died.
The mother of a tragic motorcycle crash victim, Amy Ruppel has written a book about the life and loss of her daughter. Lisa, 19, a pre nursing sophomore from Wisconsin, was just starting her 2nd year continuing her education at University of Dubuque Iowa, died from her injuries from the crash. The Iowa Donor Network staff asked if donating Lisa’s organs would be a possibility, her mother agreed and now four more lives live on whereas otherwise they would not. Amy hopes to make people aware that donating organs is the best gift ever. Educate each other the truth about organ donation.
