This piece was created for Donate Life Northwest to help tell the incredible stories of organ donation recipients. This illustration focuses on the story of Katy, a girl born with two holes in her heart, out of place heart valves, and without a pulmonary artery. She was only 10 days old during her first surgery, and the donation of heart tissue and valves from a young boy saved her life. Read more about the story online at
