A Local Rink, a Stanley Cup Champion, and a Lifesaving Choice
Ryan O’Reilly, center for the Toronto Maple Leafs, has become a hero on the ice for hockey fans across the league. But his mother, Bonnie O’Reilly, became a hero in her own right when she made a choice that ultimately ended up saving the life of a beloved member of their community. When Seaforth, Ontario rink manager Graham Nesbitt was diagnosed with a kidney disorder called Berger’s Disease, Bonnie O’Reilly immediately put herself on the list to be a donor, connecting both of their lives forever. In honor of Mother’s Day, Mike Farrell takes us inside his latest E:60 feature “Little Choices,” and shares a story of selflessness and sports.
You can watch “Little Choices” on Sunday, May 14 at 12 P.M. ET on ESPN and ESPN Plus.
