Bradley's Story

The following tribute was written by Bradley's great-uncle Chester, a La Crosse nurse.

 

UW Health Organ Procurement Organization organ donor BradleyI am a nurse in the operating room at Gundersen Lutheran medical center in LaCrosse. I have assisted with several organ procurements.

 

However, when my great-nephew, Bradley Adams, was involved in an auto accident, it was now my family that was involved with being the family on the side of having to make decisions of what to do.

 

The family had no problems with donating Bradley's organs. I was so glad they made the decision with speed and gladness.

 

As for myself, I will certainly look at the patients that come to the operating room for donations in a new light. I am glad to know that others will be a living legacy of Bradley's death.
