Editor, Have you ever received a gift that stands out in your mind more than others? Last year, 829 people in Georgia received gifts that will always have a great impact on their lives. It was the greatest gift of all — the gift of life. Will you help others receive this great gift?
April is “Donate Life Month,” and I encourage those who have not yet done so to sign up on Georgia’s donor registry by visiting www.donatelifegeorgia.org or when getting or renewing their driver licenses. Give the gift that keeps on giving — life.
One organ donor can save the lives of eight people and impact nearly 50 more through tissue donation. There are more than 121,000 people waiting nationally for a life-saving transplant — more than 4,300 of whom are our friends and neighbors in Georgia. Call LifeLink of Georgia for more information at 800-544-6667 or 706-854-0333.
