Thanks to the Trib for printing a positive medical story. I wish the girl well, and hope that she continues to improve and live life to the fullest. Also, thanks and praise to the docs and nurses who cared for her. They are truly life savers.

As an aside, many medical miracles happen everyday, but are not publicized.

Not only was this girl's life saved, but from what was learned from this, many more lives will be saved. None of this could have happened if someone didn't sign up to be an organ donor. It bothers me to think of all of the organs that are buried each day while so many people are waiting and hoping that they will get a second chance at life.
