Cleo Rose, Donor
Share Cleo's story with others:
Rest in peace little one...
Cleo was a 7-year-old boy and his mother’s heart. Cleo and his mother were at the ice cream truck and his mother wanted to look at something. She told Cleo to come with her, and as she turned he ran into the street the opposite direction of the way his mother told him to go. He was hit by a vehicle on a residential street. The woman was not cited, nor was she charged with anything. Cleo made it to the hospital alive, but was then declared brain dead. Machines were the only things keeping him alive. His body and organs were so destroyed that all his mother was able to donate (after she made the very difficult decision to take him off of life support) was his eyes and some arteries. This was 21 years ago this coming January, I believe. REST IN PEACE LITTLE ONE!!!
