Donor Alliance volunteers and advocates are the heart and soul of our efforts to inspire and inform our community about the importance of registering as organ, eye and tissue donors in Colorado and Wyoming. Each of our volunteers and advocates has their own unique and inspiring story to tell. This month, we are featuring Patricia (Pat) Thomas, a Donor Mother.
What is your favorite memory volunteering for Donor Alliance? As a Donor mother, my favorite memory while volunteering is when moms register their children to be organ donors and when folks tell me their connection to organ donation stories.
What is your proudest accomplishment? My proudest accomplishment is being the mother of my two great kids!
What song would you sing at karaoke night? Hah! That’s quite a question!
What are some of your favorite hobbies? Quilting, walking with my two Westie dogs, and different craft projects!
If you could take an all-expenses paid vacation, where would you go? Since I recently went to the Netherlands and Belgium, I would like to visit Italy.
What is the last book you read or movie you saw? Would you recommend it? The last book I read was Iron Lake by William Kent Krueger. It was very good. I would recommend it.
What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? “Don’t worry so much – it doesn’t do any good!”
