NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - Michael Strusiak, a kidney and pancreas recipient, has never forgotten his donor, Kristen Theresa O'Hara, who passed away almost 11 years ago.
In her honor, Strusiak and his bride, Lisa, chose to exchange vows at NJ Sharing Network's Landscape of Life Meditation Garden, where love and hope are celebrated and all those who gave the gift of life are remembered.
Guests made contributions to the Foundation and in recognition of those gifts, a butterfly will be added to the organization's Landscape of Life Wall in O'Hara's name. Her parents were in attendance for the ceremony that included a special stone dedication and a Wrapped in Love shawl presentation.
NJ Sharing Network board, staff, volunteers and Team Liberty members, along with friends and family, came together to promote organ donation and celebrate the many things transplantation can make possible.
