Ethan, affectionally called “Jimmy”, aged three became an organ donor after a tragic accident in country Victoria took his young life. Jimmy is a VERY LOVED member of his family. His favourite hero was Lightning McQueen followed close by Jess from Toy Story. Because of a brave and moving decision by his mother, someone else would get their miracle, 5 families would get to take their loved one home from hospital after being given the “gift of life” from Jimmy and his family.

From an unimaginable tragedy miracles can happen. Jimmy’s family never wanted another family to go through what they were going through. “We wouldn’t get our miracle but through Jimmy we could give a gift to others”. Emotions are still raw but the family found solace in knowing Ethan’s legacy lived on in the lives he saved. “The pain is still there, it will never disappear but it doesn’t mean we can’t smile your smile”.
