LDS Couple Holds to Promise of Eternity As They Seek Organ Donation

LDS Couple Holds to Promise of Eternity As They Seek Organ Donation

In spite of end-stage renal failure, an LDS woman and her husband are holding on to hope and their faith.

“I understand we are eternal companions. I want eternity here and there as well. She means everything, she is my everything,” Michael Leonard told his local news station. His wife Terri, 52, was diagnosed with end-stage renal failure and now completes dialysis six times a week. The couple has created a website to help raise awareness about live organ transplants and to see if they can find a kidney donor for Terri.

“My husband and I just met a few years ago and I want to spend as much time I can with him,” Terri said. “I’m hopeful that people understand organ donation. It may be an inconvenience to you, but to me, it’s life or death.”

You can take the 5-minute questionnaire to see if you are a possible donor here.
