Gary's Gift of Life 

Gary Foxen suffered from emphysema and was on oxygen 24 hours a day, seven days a week. In 1999, he was able to receive a lung transplant at Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center from a deceased anonymous donor. Prior to his passing in 2014, Gary made a monetary donation to ensure that donors are honored for their priceless gifts of life, health and hope by making this donor memorial possible.  Read more »

Gary Foxen - UCLA Gift of Life

The Courage of One

Called from this world, we mourn the loss of a loved one.
But a legacy was left behind; sight to a blind man,
a new heartbeat for one whose broken heart can beat no more,
breath for one who had drawn near to her last,
a second chance to live a life forsaken.
A hero's welcome awaits their arrival,
for a courageous act was their last.
Giving their last breath, the last beat of their heart,
the very sight from their eyes, to those who needed it most.
A living legacy to fallen heroes, who gave all they had to give,
as they were called home, to a hero's welcome.
