It’s sad to say but it took having a corneal transplant to “open my eyes” to the importance of organ and tissue donation. Before then I rarely thought about it. Now I am very much an advocate for this life saving/quality of life cause.
You could say I had a light-bulb moment when I thought about creating a link up that would allow those affected by organ and tissue donation a chance to come together and share their stories with others. And what a great way to spread awareness!
Do you have a “Donate Life” Story that you would like to share? Were you a recipient and would like the chance to let others know just how thankful you are for your donor and their family? Are you waiting for a donor and want others to know just how important donation is to you or someone you love? Is there a person you would like to memorialize for being a donor? If you were touched in some way by organ or tissue donation please consider sharing your experience by writing a blog about it and submitting to this link up.
