Nominated by Kristen Coles
December 04, 2013
Erica Tomlinson is awesome because on November 20 2013 she saved a life out of the kindness of her heart. Throughout the whole process she remained upbeat and positive. When she woke up from surgery all she was concerned about was the well being of her recipient. She is the most selfless person I have ever met and I hope that people will recognize how amazing she truly is. She inspires us all and we love her so much. Here's her story:
-  On November 20th, 2013 I became a Live Liver Donor.  I donated 70% of my liver to save a life.  In just 12 weeks my liver will regrow and I will be back to normal.  Organ Donation is a big thing and Canada has the lowest donation rates in the world.  Be Smart, Sign your donor card or be a living hero and do a live donation, like I did.  My recipient was a mother, a daughter, a sister, a friend, a wife and she is my neighbour... Yep I saved her life.  Be the Change, Save a live.  -
