Allie Roberts – Donor


Little Allie Roberts was only seven months old when a tragic automobile accident took her life in Hancock County in November, 2004. Her family made the momentous decision that she would be an organ and tissue donor in order to save other infants’ lives.

The family, lead by Allie’s mother Ashley Bolen and grandmother Pam Bolen, continues to remember and honor that decision by actively supporting organ donation in their community and by volunteering as a group to staff the Trust For Life booth at the State Fair each year.

Grandmother Pam wrote and published a picture book about her granddaughter and the decision that seems to have helped the family in their grief.  The book, “Allie’s Purpose”.
