Her mother said it is exactly what her daughter would want.

A 5-month-old and a 1-year-old will receive Destiny’s liver.

A 14-year-old will get her lungs and a 17-year-old will get her heart.

A horse kicked the 15-year-old in the head over the weekend, causing her life-threatening injuries. She passed away Monday morning.

Her classmates at Stuart Cramer High School in Belmont said Destiny was an inspiration.

Channel 9 is expecting a statement from the family later Tuesday.

Friends have created the hashtag #DestinyStrong to support Stafford and her family.
