95-Year Old Becomes Oldest Organ Donor in U.S. History


One man's generosity has made U.S. history.

  • 95-year-old Cecil Lockhart may have passed away on May 4, but his decision to be a donor now lives on.
  • Lockhart's liver was transplanted to a woman in her sixties.
  • According to his daughter, Lockhart was a generous person, saying, "When my brother was a donor after he passed away a few years ago, it helped my dad to heal. And today, knowing his life is continuing through others really is helping us through our grief, too."
  • Are you signed up to be an organ donor? Have you ever given or received an organ?
