A Life Everlasting: The Extraordinary Story of One Boy's Gift to Medical Science

Location: Inner Harbor Stage

Sarah Gray

When Sarah Gray received the devastating news that her unborn twin son Thomas was diagnosed with anencephaly, a terminal condition that meant he would not survive long beyond birth, she decided she wanted his death—and life—to have meaning. In the weeks before she gave birth to her sons in 2010, she arranged to donate Thomas’s organs to medical research. Later curious about how the donations were being used, Sarah embarked on a quest for those answers that took her to some of the most prestigious scientific facilities in the country, including those at Harvard, Duke, and the University of Pennsylvania. Pulling back the curtain of protocol and confidentiality, Sarah met the researchers and scientists who received Thomas’s donations, and learned how they’re being used in cutting-edge research for medical discoveries to benefit humanity. This story, and Sarah’s journey, will be shared in her new book, A Life Everlasting: The Extraordinary Story of One Boy’s Gift to Medical Science (coming September 27th).

Sarah Gray is an organ, eye, tissue and blood donation advocate and a public speaker. She is the Director of Communications for the American Association of Tissue Banks in McLean, Virginia. Sarah holds a BA from Marquette University and a MA from American University. She lives with her husband Ross and children, Callum and Jocelyn, in Washington, D.C.
