Organ and tissue donation

Think your job is tough? Meet Elena Mendoza

img_5136Imagine being the ER physician who has to tell a mother that her daughter is not going to make it.  Now imagine following on that physician’s heels to ask for that daughter’s heart.  Elena Mendoza does that every day.

I wrote about Elena in this article for Houstonia magazine.

This Thanksgiving, I am thankful for Elena.  And for all of the brave family care specialists involved in organ and tissue donation.  Their courage saves lives.
