The unselfish gift of a stranger allowed Alyssa to receive a double lung transplant and almost another five years of life. She and her family were beyond grateful to her donor and her donor's family. While Alyssa and her family were rejoicing her donor's family was grieving and she never forgot about them and their generosity.

Alyssa loved spending every minute of every day with her beautiful and needy cat George (Goober). She is survived by many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Alyssa kept in touch with so many of her friends who had Cystic Fibrosis, organ transplants and other illnesses.
