YORK COUNTY, Pa. — On Thanksgiving Day of 2008, Missy Sweitzer’s life changed forever.
“We got that phone call early in the morning, Thanksgiving morning, that no parent ever wants to get,” she recalled.
Her 20-year-old son, Zac, was hit by a drunk driver on I-83 in York Township.
He was hospitalized with a traumatic brain injury and declared brain dead just a few days later.
His mom remembers when Zac got his driver’s license.
She was at the DMV with him when he made the decision to become an organ donor.
