A few years ago Mark Larson was surprised to realize he suffered from a rare hereditary condition that severely affected his kidneys and make a kidney transplant his only option for life. After years of painful dialysis and waiting, Mark received a second chance at life in 1996, thanks to the generosity of his donor, Jess Villegas Jr. Despite the pain of losing her eldest son, Mercy Villegas had the kindness to think about the welfare of other people and decide to help them through donating her son’s organs. What Mercy didn’t know was that the greatest tragedy of her life was also the opportunity to get to know Mark, who today is like a part of her family. #NationalHispanicHeritageMonth #DoneVidaAZ #DonateLifeAZ...

Pamela is still waiting for the phone call that will change her life, and she is eager for the day she can tell her three grandsons, John, Jaden and Justin Weber, that she will receive a lifesaving transplant.
