Motorcyclist Lives On, Rides On Through Organ Donation
Date:8/4/2009

ultimately attending the only college he would consider - The Ohio State University.
  • He also indulged his adventurous side, saving he wasn't afraid to die, so he wasn't afraid to live. Michael told his mother he planned to go skydiving, cliff jumping and purchase a motorcycle.
  • To Michael, his Suzuki 600 was his freedom. He took training courses and always wore his helmet and once told his family, "When I die, I hope I die on my bike, because I'll die happy."

  • On June 5, 2006, Michael took his last final exam before graduation. Ecstatic about his accomplishment, he called his mother and said, "I haven't felt this good in a long time." Michael planned to eat some of his mom's meatballs, then go for a ride on his Suzuki. But excitement turned to tragedy that evening. A few hours later, Lynda received another call; this one informed her that Michael had been in an accident. When Lynda and her husband arrived to The Ohio State Medical Center, Michael was on a ventilator and his brain function was deteriorating. His mother knew what the meant and thought back to the day of his transplant when Michael told her, "If I die, you tell them to take anything they want so others can live." Michael accomplished something very rare; he was both a transplant recipient and an organ donor.

    Michael's spirit lives on:

     
    • Michael's heart, lungs and tissues were donated to save lives and the donation brought joy and peace to his family in the midst of tragedy.
    • The Corea family has corresponded with one of Mike's organ recipients: Barbara, a 64-year-old mother of four and grandmother to 12. S
