At two-years old, blonde-haired, blue eyed Amy Bindelglass could recite the entire alphabet and could count backwards from 10. She had a brother three years older whom she adored, and the two received numerous compliments on how precious they looked as Peter Pan and Tinkerbell at Disneyworld on Halloween. One of her favorite pastimes was watching Barney and she loved the color orange.
While visiting family in 2000, Amy was involved in a tragic car accident and lost her life. Her family made the decision to donate her organs. Because Amy’s family donated her organs, a five-year-old boy named Andrew was given a new chance at life.
The Amy Bindelglass Memorial Scholarship was created by the Center for Donation & Transplant and the Bindelglass family in memory of Amy. Every year the scholarship is offered to high school juniors or seniors attending a school district located in the Center for Donation & Transplant’s region.
