I know Eric Mclean's Family
-
-
yes I have known Eric Mclean and his family for 15 years, my mom is married to his uncle. Supported the family in any way I could, held a brat fry for Eric soon after he contracted cancer
I am compassionate, want to be treated fairly and expect others to treat me, my family and pets the same. I am always interested in giving of myself, time, food or clothes. I am so enthusiastic, I wrote a book to get the word out about organ donation. 4 years ago, my daughter died from a motorcycle crash and I chose the best thing to do, the only thing Lisa would have wanted was for me to give life, so I donated her organs and now others are living because of her decision. The book, lillies of hope contains Eric Mcleans story because I was so inspired by him. My book is available on amazon.com
