Southern Minnesota Girl’s Legacy Lives On Through Organ Donation
One Southern Minnesota community is still mourning the loss of a 12-year-old girl after she passed away last week as a result of a four-wheeler crash north of Emmons in Freeborn County Friday, August 21. 12-year-old Madison Mann's legacy, however, will still continue as her organs were donated and helped save the lives of 4 people.
According to a post from Madison's mother, Mindy Toenges, "her liver went to a 3-year-old female, her lungs went to a 30-year-old female, her left kidney went to a 68-year-old female, and her right kidney went to a 41-year-old male."
According to an online obituary, Madison passed away Wednesday August 26, 2020.
It's not the ending anyone would want, having to bury a young child. I think her mother said it best in her post about the lives Madison helped save when she wrote, "My baby girl has done amazing things if her little life & this is one of them."
Madison sustained her injuries after the ATV she was driving rolled on 120 Street West of Highway 69 just North of Emmons, MN on Friday, August 21st. Also on the ATV at the time of the rollover according to KSTP-TV were two passengers, ages 8 and 13. Mann was driving eastbound when she turned left, causing the four-wheeler to roll into the north ditch.
Hold and hug your little ones tight as every day we get to spend with them is a blessing.
