ABOUT KAYTE: Kayte Mosher of Ottumwa, Iowa was just 20 years old when she passed away on January 25, 2012 and left behind a legacy of life through her gift of tissue donation. Kayte had a giving heart, so it’s only fitting that she continues to give to others after her passing. Kayte gave 278 bone grafts, 45 skin grafts, two heart valves, and two corneas to help others. Kayte’s gifts have allowed her recipients to live happier, healthier, and more active lives. Donation is often referred to as a “gift of life” for recipients, but it has also been an incredible gift to Kayte’s family. Knowing that Kayte continues to help so many people, long after her passing, brings her family great comfort. Kayte’s sister, Heather Butterfield, was so inspired by Kayte’s legacy that she now works for Iowa Donor Network, Iowa’s sole organ procurement organization and tissue recovery agency. This scholarship, named in Kayte’s honored, aims to educate healthcare professionals on the donation process so they can help transform lives through organ and tissue donation, like Kayte did.
