Book Review

After reading Terri's moving real-life story, I understand the importance of organ donation. I will be an organ donor! The devotion and togetherness that this family had for one another is refreshing. Being from North Carolina there were so many details that were real to me. I read the book from cover to cover in one sitting. This book is a spirit lifting experience. - Crystal Ellen

Terri Godwin writes a profound story of courage and sacrifice. She writes about hope, unconditional love, sacrifice and how we hold onto life’s joys, even in the midst of all its hardship.

A volunteer member of the Washington Regional Transplant Community, Donate Life North Carolina, Carolina Donor Services, and a NC DMV Ambassador, Terri has traveled the region visiting hospitals, clinics and driver education classes sharing her personal story, dispelling myths about organ donation and spreading the message about the importance of being a donor.

Terri has been involved with various initiatives to raise awareness and educate others about living donation. She testified before the Council of the District of Columbia in support of legislation to establish a tax credit for corporate taxpayers and businesses in the District of Columbia who allow employees time off without loss or reduction in pay when they serve as a bone marrow or living organ donor. The legislation became effective in March 2007.

Terri holds degrees from North Carolina Central University, and lives in North Carolina with her husband and their daughter.
