Some 500 guests mingled at the area's largest gathering of the Donate Life Northwest community: donor families carrying on loved ones' legacies; living donors sharing the joy of giving; transplant recipients living their gratitude; transplant candidates waiting with hope; caring transplant and donation professionals; and friends, family and supporters.
Guests enjoyed a powerful program hosted by master of ceremonies, Sally Showman, and featuring: board chair / living kidney donation recipient, Gus Little; donor father, Simon Esparza, remembering the generosity of his son Robert Esparza, and honoring his gifts of life, sight and health; and the world's first heart and kidney recipient with sever hemophilia, keynote, Mike Hargett, celebrating the generosity of his anonymous heart donor and living kidney donor, Alicia.
