Donors

Marti Haykin
"Donors"
intaglio and mixed media
18" x 12"

This print was inspired by the story of Marissa-Eve Ayala, who was born in California in 1990. Marissa-Eve was conceived in the hopes that she could serve as a bone marrow donor for her sister Anissa, who was suffering from chronic myelogenous leukemia. Marissa's bone marrow was eventually used to save her sister's life, but the issues surrounding pediatric organ donation are riddled with complex ethical dilemmas. This print is intended to ask the viewer, "What do YOU think about babies serving as organ donors?"
