Kristina was as selfless and concerned for others in death as she was in life. After she was killed by a man who was charged with a DUI, her organ donations helped a little boy (left) and Sakariah Pappachan – a friend of the Chestermans.
Inspiringly, her heart literally went out to 64-year-old Susan Vieira. Below is Kristina’s mother Sandra talking with Vieira, with whom she said she felt “an instant connection.”
Susan Vieira has vowed to do as many things on Kristina’s bucket list as she can, while the 21-year-old’s heart still beats in her chest.
It is touching to see how Kristina has helped others be alive today despite her tragic loss, and inspire thousands more to live their lives to the fullest – simply by writing her dreams down onto a list.
