In Memory Of
In Loving Memory of Maikki Nekton
Maikki Nekton was a dedicated member of The LLF Family Services team since 2016. Maikki was, and continues to be, the embodiment of The LLF’s mission to recognize that, through loss, there can be hope. After being diagnosed with bile duct cancer, Maikki received a second chance at life through the gift of a liver transplant from a close friend. This experience inspired her to give back by exploring opportunities in the donation and transplantation field, which led her to The LLF.
Her bright smile, joyful laugh, and caring heart will be missed by all of us here at The LLF. Maikki was a strong, dedicated, and compassionate woman who, when given a second chance of her own, asked how she could do more to support those who make second chances possible every day. Her passion in supporting donor families and the general public through the grief experience was a meaningful and significant contribution that will continue to echo throughout the donation community.
Even in her last days, Maikki was fiercely committed to our cause. In memory of Maikki, her family requests that we all reflect on our own ability to share love and second chances by supporting organ, eye, and tissue donation. Please consider registering as an organ donor or making a charitable contribution to The LLF in her honor.
