Charles Wiltz Jr. has a unique perspective on the opportunities made possible by the gift of life; Charles works as a tissue donation specialist with LifeGift and is the son of both a donor and recipient.

Charles’ mother, Geraldine, needed a kidney transplant due to complications from kidney disease. Twelve years passed before she finally received the gift she had been waiting for. The transplant that saved Geraldine inspired her husband to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor. When Charles’ father passed away, his corneas and tissue provided life-saving and life-enhancing possibilities for many recipients.

Charles recently shared his story with Texas Medical Center News in celebration of National Donate Life Month – read the article here.
