Monica M. Braastad, Donor
Share Monica's story with others:
She loved life and is truly missed by many...
Monica died in March 2018, very unexpectedly. Her husband, Brian, wanted her heart to keep beating, so he agreed to donate her organs to save others. He was a little afraid to donate because they had never discussed her being a donor. He had health problems and had always said that he would like to be a donor, but he never expected her to go before him. He will tell you that he did it for purely selfish reasons; he wanted her heart to continue to beat. She truly had a great heart. She didn’t have a lot to give but what she had she gave freely and without reservation. She loved life and pushed herself into yours whether you were ready for her or not. She is truly missed by so very many, but I’m sure she’s in heaven with family and friends enjoying herself and getting to know everyone who has gone on before her.
