We publish a newsletter that helps raise awareness of the need for organ transplant donors. It provides information about our programs and events, and includes heart-warming stories about those who have given – and received – the gift of an organ donation.
The Be Someone's Hero short film was inspired by all living organ donors. Their courage and willing sacrifice is the true essence of a hero. A kidney from a living donor is the fastest option, with the best results that saves a life now.
Be Someone’s HERO was inspired by Michael Skelly and all living organ donors. Their courage and willing sacrifice is the true essence of a hero.
