Get Involved in Donate Life Month
It's nice that Zuckerberg is becoming more benevolent as he did recently by embracing National Donate Life Month. Facebook users can now share the fact that they are donors or connect with one of the 22 state registries. Donate Life America claims that before the drive about 400 would sign up daily, and by the end of the first day of release over 6,000 had joined. Over 24,000 registered in the first two days.
We watched a news story on Nightline last week that showcased Jessica Danielson, a young woman who is awaiting a double heart/liver transplant at the Mayo clinic. She expressed sorrow at the fact that for her to get one, someone has to die. Physicians say that members of the donor family often meet the donee to ease both parties.
Anyone can become an organ donor when getting a drivers license or ID card from the DMV and with as many as 18 deaths a day for those waiting for an organ, we hope our readers will consider becoming one as well.
