Spinal Elements, a spine technology company, is celebrating the two-year anniversary of the launch of their Hero Allograft. The Hero Allograft honors the gift of tissue donation and provides a chance for that gift to make a difference in the lives of children suffering from life-threatening conditions.
Spinal Elements estimates that by the end of this year, they will raise over $600,000 for children’s charities through the net proceeds from the Hero Allograft, processed by AlloSource. The donations are split between Make-A-Wish and St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.
The company started a nationwide “Pledge to be a Hero” campaign, which offers surgeons and hospitals the opportunity to pledge to use only allograft tissue from companies that do not profit from the transfer of that tissue whenever clinically feasible.
AlloSource is proud to be Spinal Element’s tissue partner for the Hero Allograft and to honor the gift of life in a way that changes children’s lives.
