Karen Abercrombie: Out of Despair, The Gift of Life

April 18, 2017

Welcome to Episode 3 or Season 2.  In today’s episode, Karen Abercrombie reads her poignant article, titled “Out of Despair, the Gift of Life,” from the December 2016 issue of Houstonia magazine.  Karen writes about the tragic loss of her sister at the hands of a drunk driver.  For Karen, her story is also one of salvation.  Through her sister's donation of life-saving organs and tissue, over 80 lives were saved or enriched.  As part of this experience, Karen was deeply touched by the warmth and care her family received through relationship with Elena Mendoza, a Family Care Services Supervisor with LifeGift, in Houston, Texas.  Karen and Elena are photographed here, together.  We hope you enjoy.
