It was the last run of their first day on the slopes, the beginning of another great family vacation for Todd and Tara Storch and their three children. But when thirteen-year-old Taylor’s life was tragically cut short in a skiing accident, the Storches were overcome by the devastating loss of their daughter. Still in shock, they were asked a question no parents ever think they will hear: “Would you be willing to donate Taylor’s organs?”
Their answer would change their family’s lives forever and provide comfort during their darkest moments. It would also save the lives of five desperate people anxiously waiting for a heart, a liver, a cornea, a pancreas, and a kidney.
Taylor’s death could have destroyed the Storches --- and in some ways it almost did. Instead, her gift of life brought them strength, knowing her heart was continuing to beat. TAYLOR'S GIFT is more than Taylor’s story, or even Todd and Tara’s story. It’s the story of a nurse who can now be an active mom and fully present for her kids, a cowboy who now has the strength and ability to give back to the community, a biker who can now give of himself completely, and a teenager who can now see her future for the first time.
It’s a story of finding strength in God and creating good even in the darkest times.
It’s a story of hope.
