Honoring the Gift of Life This Mother’s Day  |  May 8, 2015

Joey Gase

As Mother’s Day approaches, we wanted to highlight a donor son whose personal experience with donation now drives his career. NASCAR Driver Joey Gase celebrates his mother each time he gets in his racecar, and offers other donor families the opportunity to do the same.

Joey’s mother, Mary Jo, was an organ, eye and tissue donor who helped save or improve the lives of 66 people. Joey often features a photo of Mary Jo and other donors on his racecar to emphasize the importance of donation.

He recently sat down with Fox Sports to talk about his mother and how she still influences him every day. Watch the interview here.
