Honor walk video from Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital honors two organ donors and their families
The two organ procurements were the first at VWCH in almost five years
Janet Darnell received a life-saving lung transplant. Five months later she received life-saving surgery for colon cancer. She calls herself a “walking miracle.”
Without the lung transplant, the cancer may never have been detected.
Pies in the face mark the end of the first round of blood donation challenge. Your donation may determine who gets the next pie.
Shon Dwyer smooshed a pie into the face of Tom Nantais. Mary Pawlikowski smooshed a pie into the face of Meg Rush. Who's next?
In memory of Kyle
Last year, an honor walk for paramedic Kyle Fisher went viral. Now, his mother, a nurse at Vanderbilt Wilson County Hospital, is promoting organ donation in his memory.
As a nurse, she supported organ donation. As a mother, Kim Cantu never expected the donor to be her son.
Sky Cantu donated his heart, liver and both kidneys, saving four lives in the process.
Kevin Hartley was an organ donor, and his mother had one wish: to hear her son’s heartbeat one more time
Thanks to his heart recipient, Rhonda Lucas, she got the chance.
As a paramedic, Kyle Fisher saved many lives. As an organ donor, he saved six more.
