Becoming an organ and tissue donor is something we can easily do, but for many of us, that’s not something we even think about. It may seem like a scary thing to do, but when you’re a registered donor, you will not only be giving hope to the person in need of a life-saving transplant but also to their families. Kevin Myer, LifeGift President and CEO, joins Blanca to discuss how we can give the incredible gift of life through LifeGift. The non-profit organization offers information that can answer whatever questions, fears, or concerns that keep us from becoming a donor.
Kevin explains the need for specific organs and tissues for children and adults. He also talks about their launch of an innovative neonatal donation program and what to expect as a donor. He addresses the fears many people may have and how we can register to become a donor.
Kevin lets us know how we can become volunteers and join their upcoming LifeGift’s 2nd Chance Walk/Runs happening September 17 at Minute Maid Park, Downtown. This event honors donors and celebrates new life with recipients.
