My mission in life is to leave the world better than I found it.  I have been inspired through my work with an organization called Business Hippie, which specializes in taking ideas or concepts and creating sustainable revenue streams while making positive change in the world. Inspired by this mission, we formed Hartman Terilli Realty Group at Coldwell Banker this past January . Tobin, my husband remodels houses and Maggie Terilli and I sell the renovations as well as houses all over the Dallas/Ft. Worth Metroplex.

The Most Important Lesson My Big Brother Taught Me...

Fifteen years ago, organ donation was not on my mind. In fact, I would never have entertained the idea of writing about it. I learned, even with my personality wanting to be in control, that life is full of curves, twists, bumps, hills, and mountains. My journey learning about organ donation began with a huge mountain on my life path, the loss of my only sibling and big brother, Todd.

Why Support Taylor’s Gift? 

Taylor's Gift and their mission personally hits home for me because of a family friend whose daughter, Emma, received a new heart on October 25, 2015. Without this gift from a generous family they never even knew, a beautiful family would have lost their baby girl. Emma had a tough road to recovery but through this blessing, she is now full of life and a beautiful, happy little girl! Although stories like this are a tragic reminder of how precious life is, I believe in the mission of Taylor’s Gift. They support the loved ones during their time of need and serve as a reminder that there is still so much good in this world.

We reached a special milestone recently in our work at Taylor’s Gift Foundation as we made our 100th Legacy Gift to assist a donor family with an immediate need.  

The Legacy Gift program was launched in September 2013 and provides financial assistance for families touched by organ donation.  The financial support has provided help with a number of needs following the passing of a loved one, including funeral/burial/cremation, utility bills, housing (rent/mortgage/hotel), transportation, food and clothing.  Taylor’s Gift is the only foundation in the nation with a program set up with Organ Procurement Organizations to provide financial assistance to donor families.  We are so proud and honored to provide this resource.

A note from the Taylor's Gift Foundation team:

We are so thankful for our monthly supporters, Legacy ER & Urgent Care, for their continued support in helping build better communities by supporting Taylor's Gift and bringing awareness to issues affecting the local community. We hope you enjoy this post from Legacy ER & Urgent Care.


Every parent is in constant worry mode about their kids. Whether they’re climbing trees, riding bikes or even playing in the backyard, parents are instinctively protective of their children’s well-being. However, dangers to children don’t always come from the outside world; many can come from inside a home. There are a slew of day-to-day household items that many parents don’t realize pose a risk to their children.
