In 1994, the Green family of California was vacationing in Italy. They were held up by robbers, and their seven-year-old son Nicholas was shot and killed. His parents, Reg and Maggie, made a decision that surprised many around the world — they donated his organs to seven Italian patients waiting for transplants. Reg and Maggie Green tell their family’s story, and talk about their ongoing efforts to raise awareness of organ donation.
