Donate Life America Teams Up with PGA Tour Golfer and Two-Time Heart Transplant Recipient  |  August 21, 2012

As a professional golfer, Erik Compton is the picture of health. Yet, this was not always the case for the athletic young man. 

After recovering from two heart transplants, Compton is determined to use his professional-athlete status as a way to encourage others to donate their organ and tissue. As a result he paired up with Donate Life America for “Play Through with Erik Compton.”  Play Through aims to raise public awareness of organ and tissue donation and urge Americans to consider becoming organ donors.
