CEO Letter  |  April 28, 2011

 

April is National Donate Life Month and features an entire month of local, regional and national activities to help encourage Americans to become organ, eye and tissue donors. As it comes to a close this year, I am pleased to say that it’s been a great month!

Organ Procurement Organizations and hospitals around the country held events to promote donor registration and honor donor families. Media coverage has been overwhelming, including fantastic stories on Oprah and ESPN (the latter you can check out right here on our website.)

At AlloSource, we spent the month focusing on sharing the stories of donor families and tissue recipients. It is through personal anecdotes like these that the gift of tissue donation and the possibilities of tissue transplantation can be better understood. We continue to make this important education an ongoing mission.

Scroll down for numerous posts about the media coverage and donation activities from Donate Life Month. We hope April has inspired and invigorated you as much as it did us.
