Ashley Heath Riggs – Tissue Donor
Ashley was a very outgoing, loving son. He was like a magnet: people were drawn to him. He never met a stranger. He would give the shirt off his back to anyone who needed. We were not surprised that he had joined the KY Organ Donor Registry; we knew he would want to help someone if he could.
Ashley was able to be a tissue donor, and we have received two letters from his recipients so far.
We are still on our journey in our healing … It has been a comfort knowing that Ashley’s legacy lives on. Organ and tissue donation SAVES LIVES.
