WSU student: ‘It’s about saving lives’

April 26, 2012

CELINA — Ten years ago, Botkins resident Rachel Doseck became suddenly ill — and her life depended on a donation of life.

“I was 10 years old, and I got sick,” Doseck said. “I had flu-like symptoms, and within a week, I realized that I was really sick.”

She recalled how physicians first diagnosed her with pneumonia before finding she had a more serious problem.

“I found out I needed a (heart) transplant,” Doseck said. “It (my heart) was badly damaged.”
