A LITTLE SUPERHERO

His mother shared that he loved anything that had to do with superheroes. From dressing up as Owlette to putting on his Spiderman, Batman, and Ironman gears, Bedell was always ready to take on the character of his most beloved superheroes.

A DIFFICULT DECISION

But while they struggled to accept the unspeakable and heart-wrenching tragedy that changed their lives forever, Bedell's family made a decision. They decided their sweet boy would live on forever in the lives he could save. His heartbroken mother shared:

"The only way that I could fathom to honor him to make him a superhero is to allow life to be given."

After that, Bedell was able to save four lives with the gift of organ donation. LifeGift External Relations Vice President Lauren Quinn revealed that the little Webster boy donated his heart, liver, and both his kidneys and was able to live through others.
