I recently had the privilege of meeting David MacKinnon, David's father. He shared David's story with me. No child should have to endure what David did, and no parent should have to experience what David and Michelle did and continue to live with.
Three days before David's kidney transplant surgery, he had a massive stroke. David died, June 8, 2011, on the very day he was to receive his mother’s kidney her gift of life to her son. He was 18 years old.
They have chosen to honour David's memory with the David Gregory MacKinnon Memorial Foundation. With the funds from their various fund raising events they offer scholarships and support the following charities:
"A world in which all young people have the opportunities to reach for the stars and be able to smile while they are doing it.
To preserve the memory of David Gregory MacKinnon by encouraging education and advocacy for families affected by kidney disease, scholarships for higher education and acquisition of essential medical support and equipment, through sustained fund raising and public contributions.
David Gregory MacKinnon Memorial Foundation was established to help other children and families dealing with illness and hardship. You can join us in our striving to make the world a place where all young people have the opportunities to reach for the stars.
