Donate Life

April is National Donate Life Month in the United States and we encourage everyone to visit the DonateLife website and read some of the amazing stories of people who have turned tragedy to hope.

While many countries practice an "opt-out" organ donation model, the US requires that citizens "opt-in" individually as donors. Sadly, while the vast majority of Americans support the idea of organ donation, many simply don't get around to documenting their choice proactively before tragedy strikes.

We know that Eddie's future depends on another family's selfless donor decision. To research organ donation and officially register you and your children as organ donors, follow the link on the Donate Life America website, or directly here.

  1. As a heart transplant recipient (May 14, 2010)your son's story is so touching to me.
    I had your story, in the Meridian Magazine, forwarded to me from my aunt, I am so glad that she did. I have yet to read more of your blog, but I will be.
