This book was written about surviving the suicide of our 17 year old son. He was an organ donor and saved five lives through the donation of six organs. We've been blessed to meet four of his organ recipients. My hope is this book will help shed light on suicide to help bring this epidemic to an end. Also, the help bring awareness/promotion of organ donation. If this book can prevent just one person from committing suicide, then I will consider it a success.
