On Thursday April 30th, 2015 the Gremmo family’s life changed forever when their eldest child Nathan, aged 13 was critically injured while crossing the road. Despite an off-duty paramedic and policewoman rushing to assist and a Care Flight trauma team and paramedics arriving shortly after, his injuries were too severe and Nathan died the next day in hospital.
Generous and loving to the end, Nathan Gremmo became an organ donor, his last and most amazing gift was to save the lives of six people – including five young adults and a baby. Hours before his death he wrote on his Instagram account, “You only live once but if you do it right once is enough”. Wise beyond his years, he definitely was an extraordinary young man. Nathan is described by his father Michael, mother Kylie and sisters Ashley and Annaliese as “a boy with a unique sense of humour, a love for animals and an insatiable energy for life.”
