ROSEVILLE-

Special valentines distributed Thursday at a Roseville hospital where a woman’s life was saved.

The family of Casandra Campbell joined 23-year-old Gabby Preap in passing out thank you valentines to the staff at Kaiser Permanente’s Intensive Care Unit staff in Roseville.

Campbell, 19, died from an accidental overdose of prescribed medications in 2011, she was an organ donor and Preap received her heart.

“Cassie’s big heart continues to connect lives,” says her father, Dave Campbell. “It’s fitting — as Cassie was a popular social butterfly.”

Campbell’s family connected with Preap after the organ donation.
