Organ Donation - An Opportunity to Donate Life

April is National Donate Life Month. This observance is federally-designated to highlight the critical shortage of donors and to honor the spirit of those organ, eye and tissue donors who make transplants possible. Pardee’s Organ Procurement Organization, LifeShare, is located in Asheville serving Western N.C. Our responsibility to LifeShare is to report all deaths within an hour. In 2009,  Pardee had 21 eye donors and 11 tissue donors. Transplantation is one of the most remarkable success stories in the history of medicine. Transplants save lives, provide hope and improve the lifestyle of thousands of people. The most important part of deciding to be a donor is talking to your family and sharing your wishes. The heart on your driver’s license is your consent for donation. There is no cost to the donor’s family or estate for donation. Throughout April, Pardee wants to encourage individuals to observe National Donate Life Month by getting more information about donation, sharing that information and taking action to increase the number of donors and make a difference in the world. Sign-up today to be an organ donor on the North Carolina donor registry by clicking here. For more information, visit the LifeShare website at www.lifesharecarolinas.org. -Bonnie Hartel
