Mahwah resident, Pam Drozd visits the Emergency & Trauma Center to say thank you.

Pamela Drozd, of Mahwah, recently visited the Emergency & Trauma Center at HackensackUMC to meet with staff and to say thank you for the help she received at a very critical time in her life.  In August of 2008, Pamela’s husband, Mike, died at the age of 46 when his truck overturned on Route 17 due to mechanical failure.  The staff in the Emergency & Trauma Center, along with The Sharing Network supported Pamela as she made the decision to donate her husband’s organs. Pamela knew Mike had signed up to be an organ donor, but donating his organs was not possible due to the extent of his injuries.   However, Mike’s tissues and bones were recovered and eventually healed 57 people.
