My son Clifford

Clifford

Clifford Tuhi Thompson was a loving and giving person. He enjoyed doing things for other people and his love for his mother Victoria was unconditional. He always wanted to help others, especially children, and it'€™s for this reason that Victoria said yes to organ donation after Clifford tragically sustained a non-survivable brain injury in 2012.

Clifford was 36 when he was involved in a bicycle accident. He was taken to Middlemore Hospital where he was ventilated and admitted to the intensive care unit where sadly he died.
