Item details

Visiting “Under a Scar-Y-Sky” in the ICU KU Medical Center. This piece references my donor and myself, cut bronchial trees and ingrafted branches. It was unspeakably humbling to think about receiving an organ one time... now the thought of two? It is a gift that cannot be repaid. And this is the good news. We all need a donor. To know what love is by receiving something we can’t pay back. Are we preaching yet? You are loved more than you will ever know.
