Giving Spirit of 5-Year-Old Organ Donor Mia Lobo Lives On

Saying yes to organ and tissue donation can help save the lives of other people, but it’s a decision that’s often difficult for grieving families to make. For Dominic and Maria Lobo of Carpentersville, Ill., the courageous yet difficult decision to say yes to donation meant saying goodbye to their 5-year-old daughter Mia, who died from complications tied to the H1N1 flu virus on April 21, 2018. Mia’s parents honored her giving spirit and as an organ donor, Mia saved two lives.
