Letter about organ donation... To the Editor,


Mon, Apr 25th, 2016
Posted in Harmony Letter to the Editor

This is National Organ Donation Month and I appeal to the readers to think about being an Organ Donor. My husband, Don, received the Gift Of Life in 1993 in Florida, where we lived at the time. His Donor was a 20-year-old male that while riding his motor cycle, was hit by a drunk driver. He had signed up to be a donor when he was in high school. That day his organs helped so many people, and even though he died, many of his organs lived on and gave the Gift Of Life to so many. Don was on dialysis for two years waiting for a kidney. When it came it was such a blessing! We thank God every day for donors and their families! As my bumper sticker on my car says, “Don’t take your organs to heaven - heaven knows we need them here!” Because of the kidney transplant, Don changed his job to working as a Medical Social Worker in a Dialysis Center, feeling this was another way to pay forward. Since he was a transplant and had cancer, he couldn’t donate his organs so he donated his body to Mayo Medical School to help our future doctors. On your driver’s license you can check to be an Organ Donor, but make sure your family knows your wishes! God Bless and Thank You!
