North Central Florida Nurse Saves Lives, After Death
April marks Organ Donor Awareness month and one North Central Florida women tell us about her sister's life or death decision.
North Florida Regional Medical Center nurse Claire Jullien died 5 months ago in a car accident and saved three peoples lives because she was an organ donor. Her sister Lee Jullien was the one that convinced her to become a donor and says the only silver lining in Claire's loss is the fact that Claire is still saving lives, after death.
"To be honest I would give anything to get her back, I think that sounds selfish, but I want her back but being that I can't have her yet, I am happy that she lives on through others" said Jullien.
Kristen Jimenez with life-quest organ recovery service says it's always good to talk with your family members about your decision to become a donor.
"Its so great to hear that they talked about it, we always encourage people to talk to their loved ones about their wishes and to register themselves as well as organ donors, because i really think it could save their families some time of grief," said Jimenez.
If you are interested in becoming an organ donor, you can visit any DMV office... and you can now register online at www.donatelifeflorida.org.
