Grayson Stull had been hospitalized at Vanderbilt Medical Center after a house fire on June 6.

KNOXVILLE, Tenn — A family has said they made the decision to donate the organs of their 10-month-old boy after he was pronounced brain dead.

In an update shared on the family's GoFundMe, the update said Grayson Stull was announced as brain dead on Saturday around 4:53 p.m. 

The update said the family will disconnect the life support machines for Grayson and give him a hero walk with his family down a hallway with nurses and doctors.

The family said that by donating his organs, Grayson's legacy will "give these other children a chance at life and parents to keep loving on their babies." 

The update said the operation will take place Sunday.
