About Todd & Tara

In April 2010, after spending years building a family and successful careers, Todd & Tara Storch were faced with the sudden tragedy of losing their oldest daughter, Taylor. Amidst the grief, confusion, and heartache, the couple made the decision to pursue a calling towards something bigger than they could ever imagine. Accepting their God-given mission to promote organ donation awareness, they embraced their life’s purpose and co-founded Taylor’s Gift Foundation, less than a month after the death of their daughter.

After sharing their story on Good Morning America, The Today Show, The Ellen Degeneres Show, and other national and international media, countless individuals throughout the world have been touched by their inspiring story of hope, encouragement, and renewed perspective.

In April 2013 their first book, “Taylor’s Gift: A Courageous Story of Giving Life and Renewing Hope” hit the shelves nationally.

Testimonials

“Thank you for presenting to our staff. Your presentation hit home with the audience in a very personal and introspective way. Your speech has educated our staff from the donor family perspective on donation, and how they can improve communication with families. Your comments will be remembered for years to come, and you motivated our staff to continue the great work they do! I had several people tell me after that they were inspired, and they also went onto your website. I saw two ladies with Taylor Blue nail polish on too!”

-Alicia A, Donor Family Services Manager – New York Organ Donor Network


“The feedback received from the kids was truly outstanding. I think the biggest impact was the inspiration that they saw and felt from Todd. The presentation was awesome and the chart from “passion to talent” was very insightful to the kids. I think many of the students were amazed by how many people the foundation has touched and how it started very small and has had unbelievable growth and success. I think many of the students were impacted by seeing and feeling the passion of starting something you truly believe in and then using that to make a difference in the lives of others.”

- Susie K, Facilitator – Teen Leadership Coppell


“Todd and Tara provided a truly moving experience for a room full of people (critical care nurses, doctors, organ donation specialists) who had seen parts of their story but never the whole story. Their openness and honesty about what a donor family goes through after they leave the hospital has been eye opening and comforting. Todd and Tara brought such a renewed sense of purpose. It was a great reminder that this is why we do what we do. The Of Course moments are what get people through!”

- Nicole F, Registered Nurse III, CCRN, JPS ICU


“Having Todd and Tara speak to our College about organ donation exceeded our expectations. We are a death denying culture and so for our students to hear a personal story of loss and how organ donation impacted not only the recipients, but also the family…..was powerful! “

- Jennifer B, Professor – Collin College


“I think it was very helpful for the critical care staff to actually hear testimony from a donor family AFTER their organ donation experience. The staff only sees the family during their current state of devastating loss and I think hearing Taylor’s story helped the staff see just how helpful donation can be for the donor family as well as the recipient family.We actually have had ICU staff retelling Taylor’s story to some potential donor families. I think Taylor’s story will help other donor families through their journey and help them to make the decision to give the gift of life.”

- Tasha H, Donation Clinical Specialist – LifeGift


“The presentation exceeded my expectations.  The audience was inspired and motivated to both continue caring for our dialysis patients, as well as encourage personal and professional acquaintances to enroll as organ donors and talk about organ donation with their friends and family.”

- Christina D, Director of Operations - Fresenius Medical


“Inspired, motivated and eager to learn more, several audience members became donors after the presentation and we received several inquiries for more information. I had no idea when I planned the presentation that so many people would reach out to share their own organ donation stories..I was completely overwhelmed by the positive response and felt blessed to have been able to provide a platform for Taylor’s Gift to share their message.”
