Join us on Saturday, April 12, 2014 Living Your Best Life with Genma Holmes as we hear from Paul Morse, his wife, Delilah, and Baylor Hospital. Mr. Morse is the recipient of Ty Osman, II's heart.
Ty was with friends on spring break road trip to Ft. Worth, Texas in March 2012. Coming upon another car accident ahead of them, Ty stopped his truck to check on the other victims. A passing car hit Ty’s truck, causing it to strike. Ty was admitted to the Good Shepherd Hospital in Longview Texas where he passed away from his severe injuries. Ty was only the second patient at that hospital to be a pre-registered organ donor. Ty's gift of life impacted the Morse Family and forever changed the Osman Family, Ty's friends, and communities around the globe.
why he wanted to meet the Osman Family . Hear Mrs. Morse share about being her husband's caretaker and chief cheerleader and why her she believed praying without ceasing was her first and only option. She will share what meeting the Osmans were like for her and her children.

More About National Donate Life Month
Each day, in quiet hospital rooms and busy offices, in familiar sanctuaries and family living rooms, people make the courageous decision to give the gift of life. After passing his first driving test, an elated teenager adds a lifesaving symbol to his license. While struggling to comprehend their own loss, grieving parents choose to help another child live. During National Donate Life Month, we celebrate those who provide vital organ, eye, and tissue donations, and we bring new hope to the growing list of men, women, and children who still need a donation.
More than 120,000 Americans are now on the transplant list, and each day, 18 of them die waiting. The individuals in need of these donations are our moms, dads, brothers, sisters, children, and friends -- someone important to us or someone else. I encourage all Americans to think about their loved ones and to consider becoming a donor. Discuss your decision with those close to you, and if you decide to donate, visit www.OrganDonor.gov and sign up in your State's donor registry.
More About the Ty 2 Foundation
|Ty2 2014 3on3 Basketball Tournament|
The Ty2 Foundation has been created as a lasting memorial to the life of Ty Osman, II. Ty had a heart for others and was a light to everyone around him. The foundation will allow his light to shine forever and will serve the charities that profoundly impacted his life.
Ty Osman was a friend to everyone, always smiling and making others laugh. Ty had a true heart for others. He loved people. While Ty’s life here was way too short, he gave us all a lesson in how to be a friend. He excelled at treating people right. Rich or poor, young or old, and no one was a stranger. He loved the outdoors – to hunt, to fish, to just be outside any time. Ty also enjoyed sports – all types of sports, from football to bowling, he enjoyed them all. And he liked to work; work hard, whether it was on a widows’ home for Both Hands or a mission trip at the Medina Children’s home, Ty never shied away from a difficult task. In fact he welcomed a challenge. He touched the lives of so many with his never-ending smile and constant compassion. Ty loved the Lord. His last Bible verse Tweet was Psalms 73:26- "My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
