They say there’s no greater gift, than the gift of life. “It’s the beautiful thing that’s come out of this tragedy, really it’s the only good thing,” said Allison McKissen, whose son donated his organs. On August 11, 2016 Allison McKissen lost her son Tanner in an auto accident. “He went too fast around a corner, over corrected and rolled. He was ejected from the vehicle,” McKissen said. It was the hardest thing McKissen has ever had to go through. Despite all the pain, she says there’s one thing that’s gotten her through her darkest times. “It’s wonderful knowing that he lives on through other people and that they’re able to come home to their families,” said McKissen.
