Product Description

It was the beginning of what should have been a great family vacation. Todd and Tara Storch had brought their three children to Vail, Colorado for a week of skiing and family time. It was on the last run of their first day on the slopes when the unthinkable happened. Due to an accident on her ski run, thirteen-year-old Taylor died tragically, leaving her family reeling from loss and shock. In the moments just following Taylor's death, her doctors asked the Storch's if they wanted to donate Taylor's organs. Considering what Taylor would have wanted, they said yes, and changed the lives of five people forever.
Taylor's Gift is the story of Taylor's all too brief life, and the emotional pain of losing a child, but it's also a story of hope springing from tragedy. In time, the Storch's decided they wanted to meet the recipients of Taylor's organs. Knowing that part of Tara's life lives on in these five people gave the Storch's strength to heal and to discover new purpose as advocates for organ donation. Reading their story will encourage you to find purpose beyond the pain of grief, and touch your heart with it's message of hope.

Publisher's Description

In March 2010, thirteen-year-old Taylor Storch's life was tragically cut short by a skiing accident. With only a few minutes to consider their options, her grieving family made the life-changing decision to donate her organs. Knowing Taylor's caring spirit, they were sure this was what she would have wanted. Over the course of the next two years, Tara and Todd Storch connected with four of the five people who now live because of Taylor's gift. And through these encounters, the Storches have discovered unexpected blessings that are changing countless lives.

Now Tara and Todd share their inspiring story, shining a light at the end of the tunnel for those enduring the suffering of losing a loved one. Through the stories of the donor recipients, readers will discover hope in the midst of pain. Honest with their struggles, the Storches show readers that life is a gift and our response to grief is a choice. They also speak with a clear voice about the importance and the blessing of being an organ donor, telling the inspiring story of the creation of Taylor's Gift Foundation and its goals to raise awareness of the need for organ donation, to re-gift life, renew health, and restore families. They are changing the conversation around the globe that organ donation is not about death--it's about life! Foreword by Max Lucado.
