NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ — Recent high school graduate Max Isaac Prince, a North Caldwell resident who has a personal connection to organ donation, became the newest recipient of the Missy’s Miracle Scholarship at this summer’s NJ Sharing Network scholarship reception.

According to the NJ Sharing Network, which saves lives through organ and tissue donation, Prince was kept from a typical childhood when his brother, Sam, was born with hypoplastic left-heart syndrome. Instead of riding bicycles and playing catch with his little brother, Max watched Sam struggle to breathe. Ultimately, one family’s tragedy became his family’s miracle, and Max’s brother received a heart transplant.

Since his brother’s surgery, Max has been devoted to raising money and awareness for NJ Sharing Network, raising thousands of dollars and becoming an official NJ Sharing Network volunteer.

June 18, 2018

The tree fell into my 8 month old’s bedroom destroying the entire structure of our home.

My husband, with what I call divine intervention, told us to go ...
