2007 was an excellent year for organ and tissue donation awareness with extensive media coverage from around the world, as reported in the headlines I've been posting here. And 2008 should bring even greater awareness as the message spreads to more and more people about the importance of signing their donor cards or driver's licenses, etc. The Rose Parade was an excellent kick-off with the Donate Life float winning a prize for the float having the most dramatic impact and the TV announcers were very moved by the stories of donors and recipients. If you haven't seen the float there's a photo in a previous post.
Best wishes to all who are waiting for a transplant. May your "gift of life" come swiftly to you.
