Lyle Frank Organ Donor

Lyle came to the West Kootenays as a 19-year-old junior hockey player. He played his career for the Beaver Valley Nitehawks and loved the area and people so much, he made the Kootenays he home. He has coached minor hockey, plays commercial league hockey and got an apprenticeship at Curlew Refrigeration because of his tremendous work ethic. Just this past week 24 year old Lyle donated a kidney. He initially hoped he would be a match for his mom but when he wasn’t he still decided to donate.  Lyle and his mom will be off work for the next few months recovering. If you can find it in your heart to help this extraordinary young man please donate to or give a cash donation at the Smokies games and BV Nitehawks games.
