Organ and Tissue Donation

Posted Aug 26 2008 4:07pm

I wanted to take an opportunity to remind everyone how important it is to consider this topic. There is a mother in Illinois who has brought this issue to light for me. Her little girl Annika is 6 years old and has had 2 liver transplants and is currently waiting on a list for a third.

I was surprised to learn that "Each day, about 77 people get the organ transplant that gives them a second chance, but 19 others die waiting for a donated organ."

The message needs to get out! To learn more, visit these sites:
