"One of the ways we can celebrate her being alive is allowing her death to bring life to others."
From award-winning author, Gary Shelly, comes a story that simply must be told...
The phone call informing Sarah Nealle that her six-year-old daughter, Amy, has been in a school bus accident sends her on a journey she could never have imagined nor planned for.
Doctors. The ICU. An epidural hematoma. Respirators. Apnea tests. Nationwide publicity. A mogul who wants to buy her daughter's heart. The grieving mother on television begging for a liver donor to save her son. Hospitals that fight over a first-grader's body. Relatives seeking revenge. A conspiracy to end organ transplants. The hero who can't save his own son.
A ninety-two-year old who brings wisdom and peace, together with a reporter who reveals her own story.
Then, the lonely decision of how to let her daughter die with dignity and perhaps fulfill a mission Amy would've volunteered for.
Will her family provide support? Might those who wait for organs applaud? Can someone who faces this impossible choice in the future learn from her? Would Amy be proud?
How does one measure what is best and what is not when nothing makes sense?
Praise for the Novel DYING TO GIVE
"Shelly successfully portrays an intensely painful dilemma...a well-told, worldly story about a complex issue...an often moving tale that humanizes the process of organ donation."
