The Gift Of Life

It's been fourteen years that must feel like forever for this Friendswood family. After a tragic car accident took their teenaged daughter Steffani from them, they donated her organs; her healthy heart subsequently saved the life of Hazel Campbell. After the transplant, Hazel dedicated her life to tirelessly campaign for organ donation. She participated in the annual scholarship fund marathon walk in Stef's memory and became an active speaker for the Gift of Life Donor Program. 
     Because of the selfless gift that Steffani's family gave in their grief, this transplant recipient enjoyed 14 extra years on earth. Hazel passed away this week on what would have been Steffani's 30th birthday. It was undoubtedly the most heavenly birthday present ever as these two angels, who shared one heart, met for the first time in the presence of their Maker. Please keep Hazel's family and friends in your thoughts and prayers as they celebrate her life and say their good-byes, then help pass along the gift of life by becoming an organ donor today.
