Something that is so sensitive and so tragic yet so selfless and amazing that a little life could save so many.
This family said goodbye way too soon to their little man and heroically went on to save 5 other lives because of their choice to choose and save lives.
We are heartbroken, and to know that the Amherst and North Ridgeville communities share in that feeling is overwhelming. We cannot say enough words to thank the communities for their outpouring of support, love, hugs, prayers, donations and anything that we needed. He was a light in our lives and he will be forever in our hearts. Drew’s organs were donated to Lifebanc and he has helped change five lives so far. We find comfort in knowing that his heart is beating again, and parts of him will live on through others. He would have loved nothing more than knowing that he IS a hero to so many. He was the kindest, most loving boy with an imagination far beyond what we can put to words which made him the greatest son.
From the bottom of our hearts:
Matt Hayden & Julie Hayden
