Ashley was a great kid. She always wanted to help whenever she could. On Jan. 5th 2010 she crossed the street to get to her school bus stop, and was struck by a car. She was air lifted to SLC Primary Children's Hospital. She fought for 8 days to survive but on Jan. 13th the injury to her brain became too much and she passed away. We donated her organs and she saved the lives of 5 people: a 13 month old girl who was dying from liver disease, a boy from Canada who needed a heart transplant,two women and a man . A lady that lives in Utah received her kidney and pancreas, who was dying from no kidney activity and diabetes, who is now not only healthy but no longer suffers from diabetes. She told me she can now eat candy for the first time in her life. They've put up a plaque for her at the SLC library in Downtown SLC, Utah. She' my daughter, my best friend, my hero forever.
