About Ka'Mia: “Ka’Mia was a very smart and loving girl, always smiling and very outspoken,” says Corey Garner, her dad. “She was the oldest out of nine siblings: one twin sister, a younger sister and seven brothers. Without hesitation, her mother and I knew we were going to donate her organs and tissue because if it was the other way around, we would want the same. What’s even more special is that two years after she passed, the same exact date, her baby brother, Kane, was born, which let me know that’s what she wanted: to give us even more reasons to smile and be happy. She was able to help and still live on.”

Date of death: Aug. 3, 2016
