Today's Dispatch had a story about how organ donations in central Ohio (LOOP's territory) topped 100 last year, beating the old record of 86 donors in one year. This is great--thanks Ohioans!
But, it emphasizes how much more work still needs to be done. Over 70% of people think that donation is a worthy goal, yet so few people actually do it, or have their wishes followed by their families. Please, please if you haven't already, take the time to hop over to Lifeline's website (link on right!) and register. If you have already, get your families to. It makes such a huge difference in so many people's lives. I know I've said this before, but I'll keep saying it! Slightly more than 100 people donated last year. Can we top that this year? I hope so, because it will save so many people, and keep so many huysbands, wifes, sons, daughters, friends, cousins, nieces, nephews, etc., alive and bringing joy and happiness to so many people. There is nothing like the feeling of new life you get after transplant. It is remarkable. Please help spread that feeling!! Besides, you aren't going to be using them!
