Did you know that ONE organ donor can save up to 8 lives, and improve the lives of about 100 other lives?

I have become a HUGE advocate for organ donation, even moreso than before, since my hospitalization. I think that it’s important to keep in mind that I was VERY sick and needed a heart VERY quickly. If it wasn’t for my organ donor, I would not be here today writing this blog for you all and living my best life.

Please consider becoming an organ donor if you aren’t one already.

If you live in the US, you can do so by going to OrganDonor.gov or DonateLifeAmerica.net for further instructions.
