Natasha Richardson’s Family Donated Her Organs

Mar 26, 2009 Author: Admin | Filed under: Natasha Richardson

Natasha Richardson was known to be a giving and compassionate woman throughout her all-too-short life.

That’s probably why her family made the decision — most likely according to her expressed wishes — to donate her organs to save other patients’ lives. After she was taken off life support March 18 at Manhattan’s Lenox Hill Hospital, the race to harvest her strong and otherwise healthy organs began.

Organ donation "is very Natasha," a family friend told people. "She spent so much time fighting the stigma of AIDS; someone like that would naturally donate her organs. At least by donating her organs something good could come out of [the tragedy]."

Richardson, 45, died a few days after an unremarkable fall during a beginners ski lesson at a Canadian resort March 16.

An autopsy revealed that a blow to her head caused a fatal epidural hematoma, bleeding between her brain and her skull.

Bless you for giving to others in your last hour, Natasha.

We have some very tragic news to report tonight. Following aminor fall on the slopes in Canada on Monday, actress Natasha Richardson has died at the young age of 45. Natasha’s heartbroken family released the following statement to the press:

"Liam Neeson, his sons, and the entire family are shocked and devastated by the tragic death of their beloved Natasha. They are profoundly grateful for the support, love and prayers of everyone, and ask for privacy during this very difficult time."
