Writer Statement

GIFTED is a story that has been brewing in my head for many years; inspired by my time spent working at Mid-America Transplant Services in St. Louis, Missouri. This is a fictional story based, loosely, on my experiences there as an Organ Procurement Coordinator. During this time in my career, I had the extreme honor of working with donor families as they navigated the waters of grief and the unexpected loss of their loved one. I was allowed into their lives during what would seem to be their most devastating and vulnerable moments. The compassion that they were able to muster is the reason for this story. It was written as a tribute to each of them and the thousands of donor families around the country that provide the gift of life through the selfless act of organ and tissue donation.
