Hello- I am running the 1/2 marathon to help raise awareness for organ donation. On August 6, 2012 it will mark the third anniversary of my husband kidney transplant. I guess one could say that we were truely meant to be as i took a chance and got tested to be his donor, and we matched! we also were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary that year. A match made in heaven. Billy is doing fabulous with that new kidney and i also am fine with no effects from one kidney at all. if anything, i am a healthier person! Billy and I decided that we wanted to get involved in Donate Life Ct. to give back something to the community because life is so much better for our family due to the organ donation. Please think about helping me raise awareness for Donate life by making a contribution to my cause. Remember:
ONE BY ONE, WE CAN BE THE BETTER WORLD WE WISH FOR!
Did you know 1 organ and tissue donor can SAVE and IMPROVE the lives of 75 people?
Donate Life Connecticut is dedicated to increasing the number of registered organ and tissue donors through outreach and education. Our organization is Volunteer driven...people that have received an organ/tissue transplant, donor families whose loved ones gave the gift of life, living donors, friends and family. We are all passionate about sharing our stories and raising awareness.
Right here in Connecticut more than 1,250 men, women and children wait for a life-saving transplant...and more than 113,000 Americans wait nationwide. Unfortunately, 18 people will die every day simply because an organ did not come in time. We want to change these statistics. More registered donors means more transplants...MORE LIVES SAVED.
THANK YOU for JOINING OUR TEAM! THANK YOU for supporting our cause!
Together we can raise awareness! Together we can save lives!
