“Working in the field of organ, tissue and eye donation for over 20 years has given me the opportunity to work with the families of donors as well as recipients of life-saving and life-enhancing gifts. I wrote Roby in hopes that even our younger readers can learn about the gift of life. Roby teaches that even after death you can choose to give life to others by being a donor and telling your family about your wishes.”- Eva Jo Sombathy
