My older sister, Alicia Sabaugh, tragically passed away in a car accident in January 2009 at the age of 27. She had just completed her first semester of law school and was undoubtedly a dynamic woman who was determined to make a difference in the world. She never met a debate she didn’t like, had an incredible sense of humor, and always carried an unquenchable thirst for knowledge often resorting to books and websites to further research various topics. She had a passion for math and science, and in particular, astronomy, but was also an incredibly gifted artist with many of her works still prominently displayed in my parents’ home. Alicia was a passionate and outspoken advocate for the underprivileged and was truly determined to help bring equality to the world.
About three months before her fateful day, while watching a news story about organ transplants, Alicia remarked to my parents to “not bury her organs should she ever cross the point of no return”. That conversation proved to be a defining moment in Alicia’s life and our family continues to take great comfort knowing that Alicia’s ultimate sacrifice brought life to those she had always wished to serve.
