Sarah-bear just informed me that April is also Organ Donor Awareness Month. She should know–she’s the grateful recipient of a donated liver. She had her transplant 15 years ago, and celebrates her “birthday” every year.
Last June one of my very good friends was killed in a serious car wreck, along with two of her four children. Her youngest daughter’s organs were donated, and her husband formed an organization to promote organ donation.
There is ALWAYS a need for organ and tissue donation. To get more information, visit the official Organ Donor site here.
Here are a few words from Sarah-bear: Sign your donor card. Let your family know. Like her bumper sticker says, “Don’t take your organs to heaven. Heaven knows we need them here.”
