July 8, 2012 - To many this day holds no meaning. To some this date holds great significance. It is a day to be celebrated, and yet it is also a day to be mourned. On this day one family lost their baby, a tiny life that could not be saved. And, in the midst of their overwhelming loss and unimaginable pain they did something so breathtakingly selfless. They saved the life of a child that encompasses so many people’s hearts: Marcos.
Marcos was born with a condition that would result in the loss of nearly all of his small intestine as well as end stage liver failure. He was flown from state to state for care while doctors offered little hope. His only chance: a multi-visceral organ transplant.
