Paying It Forward
After Harry Damon's son, Nick, died in a snowmobiling accident, the 55-year-old firefighter struggled to find a way to honor the son he calls "the light of my life." 

"When you lose someone that you care for greatly, it's a terrible thing to go through," Harry explains. "There is a hole that can't be filled."

Harry knew he wanted to give something back in Nick's memory. After doing extensive research and speaking with the National Kidney Registry, Harry decided to give the ultimate gift: his own living kidney to a complete stranger.

Learn more about how Harry's gift changed the lives of 20 people. It takes only one altruistic donation to start a chain, Harry explains. "I did not have any idea that it was going to be as successful a chain as it turned out to be."
