Lifesavers Heroes


by Moani from Tampico

Consider, decide, do.

Alejandro was born in 1963; he had 2 daughters, Alejandra and Abril. He died in 1999. He is my hero.

He did a very special thing for one of his daughters, my cousin. My cousin had a very sick heart and she needed a heart transplant, but there were no hearts available. My Uncle Alejandro knew Alejandra was suffering a lot, just like him. So, he decided to make a very important decision. He started saying good-by to all of the family, but nobody knew what he was going to do. He wrote Alejandra a letter that said:

My beautiful daughter:

Congratulations, you are safe and healthy. Sorry I'm not with you at this moment. Kisses and hugs from me. I only want you to know that I love you very much and that with all my love I leave you my heart. My heart is now yours. I will always be with you.

Sincerely yours,

My uncle saved his daughter. I admire him and he is my hero because what he did is, for me, something beautiful.

For me, my uncle was a very sweet person that did whatever he had to for his daughter whom he loved so much. His decision was to give her his heart to save her life. Wherever you are Uncle Alex, I love you!
