Please support Donate Life. David Langer, Michael Langer, and Julia Canestraro will be running to honor Dr. Sukru Emre, Professor of Surgery and Pediatrics, Chief Section of Transplantation and Immunology, Director, Yale-New Haven Transplant Center. Dr. Emre has enriched our lives and the lives of so many. Through outreach and education we can increase organ donations, allowing Dr. Emre to bring hope to many more patients and families. We will always be greatful for his surgical skill and his continued loving care of Terrie.
P.S. If you are so generous to donate to our cause- please be aware during check out to UNCLICK the option at check out to pay a processing fee (this is a 'tip' of sorts to the fundraising company - and does not offset the credit card fee charged to Donate Life CT). Bring the drop down menu 'tip' processing fee to $0. Sorry for the inconvenience - but we don't want you to be overcharged your intended gift. Thank you!

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 1,260 men, women and children wait for a life-saving transplant...and more than 114,000 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!
