Cinnamon’s decision to become a donor showed that her spirit of giving to others was present in everything she did. She had a love for the medical field early on and participated in Doctors Without Borders, helping with corrective leg surgery for young children in the Dominican Republic.
Though her family greatly misses her, they are comforted in knowing she was able to help provide a second chance to someone else gives them hope.
“If she could help someone better their life, or help them live, that’s what she always wanted to do, even now that she’s gone,” said Taylor Diamond, Cinnamon’s mom. “She believed in giving life.”
Despite Cinnamon’s physical absence, her legacy of love and kindness continues through the donation of life she has given to others. Though the recipients never met his sister, James believes her gracious spirit is with them.
Quoting a poem written to honor her daughter, Taylor finds peace in Cinnamon’s generous gift. “Our baby girl will live on through this gift. May the light she gave us find its way to give life and hope to others.”
