Young woman from Huron joined recipient of her mother’s lungs in Pasadena for Rose Parade
The eighteen months she spent on the transplant waitlist inspired her to become a Donate Life Ambassador with Donor Network West, the federally designated organ and tissue recovery organization for Central and Northern California and Northern Nevada. She has taken the opportunity to share her story in her surrounding community.
Carolyn is alive today because of the generous decision of the Espinoza-Castro family to donate the organs of the family’s 37-year-old mother, Maria Castro Martinez. She and her husband, Larry, had the amazing opportunity to meet their donor family last year and have since built a special bond with them; becoming one family.
