A North Carolina teenager who died Monday morning is giving life to others.
Destiny Stafford’s mother wrote on Facebook that her daughter’s organs are going to infants who need them.
Her mother said it is exactly what her daughter would want.
A 5-month-old and a 1-year-old will receive Destiny’s liver.
A 14-year-old will get her lungs and a 17-year-old will get her heart.
A horse kicked the 15-year-old in the head over the weekend, causing her life-threatening injuries. She passed away Monday morning.
Her classmates at Stuart Cramer High School in Belmont said Destiny was an inspiration.
Channel 9 is expecting a statement from the family later Tuesday.
Friends have created the hashtag #DestinyStrong to support Stafford and her family.
