Our Mission = Information + Encouragement + Support
Our mission is to raise and promote awareness and information about the need for organ and tissue donors and to encourage people to become organ and tissue donors. We want to provide support and encouragement to transplant recipients and those waiting.
Who We Are
Organ Donor Awareness consists of a small group of people dedicated to raising and promoting awareness about the need for organ and tissue donors. Our lives have been affected by a family member who is presently on a waiting list for a kidney transplant. Note: On June 22, 2010, Kevin received a kidney transplant from a deceased organ donor. Praise the Lord!
To Remember Me - I Will Live Forever
The day will come when my body will lie upon a white sheet neatly tucked under four corners of a mattress located in a hospital; busily occupied with the living and the dying. At a certain moment a doctor will determine that my brain has ceased to function and that, for all intents and purposes, my life has stopped.
If, by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone who needs you. If you do all I have asked, I will live forever.
