LETTER: Organ recipients will always be grateful

ON BEHALF of all the recipients of donated organs, I would like to thank the Miller family for supporting their son Cole's wishes to donate his organs to save other lives.

In his case, six lives.

What an amazingly selfless thing for this family to do after such a tragedy, to be thinking of others and giving them the ultimate gift - life.

As the second anniversery of my lung transplant approaches, not a day goes by that I don't think of my donor.

All I know of him is he was also a young man on the cusp of life, as was Cole, and he also died tragically.

The Miller family can be assured that the people who are alive because of your son's incredible gift - even though they will not know who their donor was - will also think daily of this gift .

The gift of life.

DON PORTORS, Mooloolaba
