FELICIA TODD WILL LOVED ONES OF
13 YEAR OLD SAMARIA GLEN MADE
THE DECISION TO DONATE HER
ORGANS AFTER SHE DIED IN THE
HOSPITAL.
HER FATHER R WAS ALSO IN DIRE ND
OF A KIDNEY TRANSPLANT, AND THEY
FOUND OUT SHE WAS HIS MATCH.
I TALKED TO SAMARIA’S MOTHER AS
SHE REMEMBERS HER BEAUTIFUL
LIFE.
SO I WAS PRAYING FOR A MIRACLE
IN THE HOSPITAL.
HER LIFE WAS A MIRACLE.
ALL.
I LOVE HER AND I MISS HER EVERY
DAY.
EVERY MOMENT.
DIMA MARTIN NOW ASKS WHY?
WHY?
WHY DID THIS HAPPEN TO HER
DAUGHTER?
13 YEAR OLD SAMARIA GLEN WAS
HEALTHY, VIBRANT, BUT ON JANUARY
31ST, HER LIFE CHANGED.
SHE COCOMPLAINED OF A HEADACHE.
UNBEKNOWNST TO ME.
UM, HOW SEVERE WAS HER BRAIN WAS
BLEEDING.
SO SHE WAS TAKEN TO THE
HOSPITAL, LOCAL HOSPITAL, AND
THEY AIRLIFTED TO JOE DIMAGGIO.
SAMARIA WAS IN THE HOSPITAL FOR
ABOUT A WEEK BEFORE SHE DIED.
BUT I STILL BELIEVE IN GOD TO DO
THE IMPOSSIBLE TO SAVE HER.
HER FAMILY MADE THE DECISION TO
DONATE HER ORGANS, SAVING FIVE
PEOPLE’S LIVES AND ONE OF THOSE
LIVES.
SAMARIA’S FATHER, HE NEVER TOLD
HIS KIDS HE WAS ON DIALYSIS
SERVICE, BUT HE WAS IN DIRE NEED
OFOF A KIDNEY TRANSPLANT.
AND NOW SAMARIA’S KIDNEY HELPED
SAVE HER FATHER’S LIFE.
SHE WOULD HAVE WANTED THAT.
SHE WOULD HAVE WANTED TO SAVE
HER FATHER.
THE TRAGEDY ALSO OCCURRED JUST A
COUPLE DAYS BEFORE DIMA WAS
ABOUT TO GET MARRIED.
WENT FROM A TIME TO CELEBRATE
LOVE TO.
WATCHING MY DAUGHTER LAY THERE
UNRESPONSIVE, NOT CONSCIOUS.
YOU KNOW, AND THEN LOSING HER
AND NOW DIMA WEARS THESE
BRACELETS HER DAUGHTER MADE FOR
HER AS A WEDDING GIFT.
SAMARIA HAD BIG DREAMS.
SHE WAS A SEVENTH GRADER AT BOK
MIDDLE SCHOOL OF THE ARTS IN
WEST PALM BEACH.
SHE WANTED TO BE AN ACTRESS, SO
WOULD MEMORIZE MONOLOGUES,
SINGING SONGS.
SHE WAS A BIG TAYLOR SWIFT FAN
AND NOW SHE CHERISHES THE
MEMORIES OF HER BRIGHT
PERSONALITY AND TAKES IT ONE DAY
AT A TIME.
I CALL HER MY LOVE BUG.
SO LOVE BUG, I LOVE YOU ALL SO
BAD.
SHE’S PERFECT.
SHE’S AMAZING, SHE’S BEAUTIFUL.
AND IT STARTED ON THE INSIDE.
AND SAMARIA IS TRULY A SHINING
EXAMPLE OF WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A
HERO TO EVERYBODY AROUND THEM.
AND IN FACT, EVERY EIGHT MINUTES
ANOTHER PERSON IS ADDED TO THE
NATIONAL TRANSPLANT WAITING LIST
AND THIS MONTH IS DONATE LIFE
MONTH.
SO SAMARIA LOVED ONES WANT TO
SHARE THIS HEROIC STORY OF THEIR
DAUGHTER.
SHE SAVED HER FATHER.
SHE DID.
AND HER FATHER LIVES.
AND HER FATHER DID NOT TELL ANY
OF HIS CHILDREN BECAUSE THEY
DIDN’T WANT THEIR CHILDREN TO
CARRY THAT BURDEN.
BUT IN THE END, IT TURNED OUT
THAT THEIR DAUGHTER DID SAVE HIS
LIFE.
SO WOW, SHE DID LIVE A BEAUTIFUL
LIFE.
SHE DID, SHE DID.
OUR HEARTS GO OUT TO HER FAMILY
