Mandy Harrell

Organ Donor
Age 18

During her participation in Americas Junior Miss Scholarship Program in July 2005, when asked to name the hypothetical Broadway play about her life, she proudly proclaimed Life is Short and So Am I. She explained that she had always tried to live life to its fullest while being true to the values she had been taught. A scholarship is given each year in Mandys memory to a college bound student at the high school she attended. Purple and green bracelets made by her friends after her death proclaim, Life is Short and her initials, a reminder to all that we are not promised tomorrow. This fall, the Central High School Cheerleading Squad, on which she served for 3 years, named the cheerleading platform in Mandys memory to ensure that she is forever remembered at her alma mater. Each time I tell her story as a volunteer for TDS, her story teaches others of the importance of donation. We are grateful for the time we had with Mandy and so pleased and thankful that her last gifts have provided the opportunity for new life to so many others.
