The tragic death last year of a New York hedge fund manager gave life to three people. And they were able to offer their thanks to his widow in advance of Thanksgiving this year.
Christophe Arroyo suffered a brain aneurysm during a half-marathon last May, just weeks before his 40th birthday. He left behind a wife and two young children—and three very grateful New Yorkers.
Rockland County chief of detectives Peter Modafferi received Arroyo's heart, Dutchess County insurance adjuster Janelle Stiglic his pancreas and a kidney, and a Long Island music producer, Timothy Harris, his liver.
"Christophe lived larger than life," his widow, Yovanka, said at the New York Organ Donor Network's headquarters. "It is only appropriate that he lives on through you."
"These people all faced life-threatening situations and they pulled through," she continued. "They are moving forward, and Christophe is part of that—and that is amazing. Inevitably, it's all moving forward."
Modafferi, now 63, was only days from death after three years on the waiting list when he got Arroyo's heart. "I'm going to catch a lot more bad guys now."
