April is organ donation month

POSTED: April 26, 2007 5:02 a.m.
AUGUSTA — Every April LifeLink of Georgia, the organ procurement organization, along with the U.S Department of Health and Human Services and the transplant community across the country honor and pay tribute to the generosity of organ donors and their families.
National Donate Life Month inspires individuals to seek information about the importance of becoming an organ and tissue donor. In addition, LifeLink schedules and promotes multiple events to highlight the critical organ shortage in the United States.
Currently more than 95,000 people are listed for an organ transplant nationwide; in Georgia over 1,700 of our family members, friends, and colleagues await their gift of life.
“Each year we focus on families and organizations to help LifeLink inform Georgians about organ and tissue donation,” Kathleen Lilly, executive director of LifeLink of Georgia, said. “We share information with the community about the greatest gift anyone could ever give... the gift of life.”
Call Tracy Gay, public relations specialist at 800-544-6667 to schedule a free presentation. LifeLink is also available to participate at health fairs or other special events. For more information, visit the Web site at www.lifelinkfound.org.
