Honoring Donors in National Donate Life Month: Brett Mills  |  April 18, 2014

Brett MillsBrett loved to be outside – he was passionate about fishing, hunting and spending time at his family’s cabin.

Brett’s life ended in a tragic car accident, but his legacy lives on through the work of his mother, Sherry. After Brett’s death, she started The Wounded Spirit Foundation, named after a song Brett’s father wrote about him.

Sherry realized other parents were also navigating the devastating grief of losing a child. She founded The Wounded Spirit Foundation to connect with other mothers who had also lost a child. Sherry provides grieving mothers with baskets that include books, a candle, a journal, a Donate Life bracelet and information about Brett.

Sherry is proud Brett’s decision to be an organ and tissue donor was his own. The gift of Brett’s tissue will provide healing for many recipients.
