Twelve-year-old Carmen Smith of Louisville loved softball, cheerleading and saddling up for competitive barrel racing. A traumatic head injury suffered in 2015 following a competition ended Carmen's short life, but her parents’ selfless act to donate her organs allowed others to live. Carmen and other Mississippians who are organ donors were honored this month during the annual Wall of Heroes ceremony at UMMC.
