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. Includes 8 pages of color photos. Softcover.

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.

Author Bio

After the death of his daughter, Todd Storch left a successful career in media consulting to pursue his God-given passion to promote organ donation. As co-founder of Taylor's Gift Foundation, Todd manages the day-to-day operations. In less than two years, Todd has spoken to nearly 10,000 people. Through the foundation's efforts, he has contributed to the certification of nearly 2,000,000 organ donors in Texas and over 12,000,000 nationally. Todd has more than twenty years of experience as a senior executive in radio and digital media sales, and extensive experience helping companies build their digital and interactive divisions.

Tara Storch is an award-winning sales and marketing professional, an entrepreneur, and a community leader, but most importantly she is a wife to Todd and a mom to Ryan and Peyton. Along with her husband, Todd, she cofounded Taylor's Gift Foundation to increase organ donation to "regift life, renew health, and restore families." She and her husband have shared their story on Good Morning America, The Today Show, and The Ellen DeGeneres Show, and other national media.

Jennifer Schuchmann specializes in collaborations with celebrities and newsmakers. Among her many books, she is the coauthor with Kurt and Brenda Warner of the New York Times bestselling First Things First; with Dan Woolley of Unshaken, the only book written by a survivor of the Haiti earthquake; and with Jim Cymbala of Spirit Rising.

    I bought these as Christmas gifts: one for my sister, and one for her friend. This is the kind of story they like, so I am sure they will like them. Again, a nice Christmas gift for a good price. I am not that much of a reader, but I started reading it and liked it. Hope to be real careful reading it myself before I send it as a gift. But if it does get missed up, I know other friends who will enjoy it as "used" reading. Again, the price was right.

    I enjoyed this book very much. When the unthinkable happens to their young daughter her parents are gracious enough to donate her organs which improved and saved the lives of five strangers. This book is extraordinarily inspiring and hopefully reminds all who read it why donating organs is so very important. It was also great to see how the family turned their loss into a crusade in which they honored their daughter by creating a foundation committed to promoting organ donation. The family is also able to connect with the recipients of their daughters organs. I believe if more people could see or hear first hand how recipients of their loved ones donated organs lives were saved or vastly improved from receiving these organs more people would consider organ donation than currently do. I hope this book helps others see what a selfless act organ donating is and they register to be organ donors themselves. If everyone registers to be donors prior to an unexpected injury/death it would make their families decision much easier during their time of shock/grief because they will already know your wishes so they don't have to try and contemplate what your wishes may have been in regards to organ donation, they would already know!! A MUST READ FOR EVERONE...THEN PASS IT ON TO THOSE YOU LOVE SO THEY CAN READ IT TOO!!

    Inspiring. Everyone has their struggles, and this is beyond difficult, how Todd and Tara leaned on each other and God is a true testament to their faith and their family. I also have a new outlook on organ donation. What a positive way to show how important this option is when so many people have the complete wrong idea about it. I would highly recommend this for families, Bible Studies, Book Clubs, or just someone struggling with why things happen and how to question God and not walk away from Him!
