Hello May and a new face in the LifeLink Faces of Transplantation Calendar. Meet the Adams Family.
Mr. James William Adams, III, cared deeply for his family and community. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and faithful member of his church who loved gardening with his wife, Cheryl. Cheryl said James’ purpose in life was to love everybody, which he certainly did. As a healthcare professional, James was dedicated to exercising and eating well, and it was while he was exercising at the gym in the hospital where he also worked that James unexpectedly passed away. James and Cheryl had previously discussed the importance of organ and tissue donation and both had registered to be donors at their local driver license office. Thanks to James’ decision, he impacted
20 lives through his cornea and tissue donations. Cheryl is proud of the renewed life James’ donation has given others as a final gift of love and grateful to LifeLink of Georgia for helping her to heal. For those families who are on the fence about donation, she says, “Breathe, pray on it, and say yes.”
