Natasha’s Organs Donated

More news in the wake of actress Natasha Richardson’s death last Wednesday: Her organs have been donated to help save the lives of other patients. Her family made the decision after she was taken off life support at a New York hospital, People reports. Organ donation “is very Natasha,” a family friend tells the magazine. “She spent so much time fighting the stigma of AIDS; someone like that would naturally donate her organs. At least by donating her organs something good could come out of [the tragedy].” Richardson’s husband, Liam Neeson, “is doing okay,” says friend Blaine Trump. “It takes a while to absorb this. But he says the family needs to move forward. They will take it one step at a time.” Neeson is expected back on the Toronto set of his upcoming film Chloe, and his and Richardson’s sons are headed back to school.
