BENEFITING: Donate Life Connecticut
ORGANIZER: Donate Life Connecticut
EVENT DATE: Oct 12, 2013
Did you know 1 organ and tissue donor can SAVE and IMPROVE the lives of over 50 people? I know this because my husband was one of those people whose life was saved by an organ donor.
Since Mike's double lung transplant, countless people have told us that they registered to be an organ donor or convinced someone close to them to do it, because of him. That's exactly what Donate Life Connecticut is aiming to do - spread the word on the importance of organ donation and encourage more people to register as an organ and tissue donors.
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 1,355 men, women and children wait for a life-saving transplant...and more than 118,000 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 supporting our cause!
Together we can raise awareness! Together we can save lives!
