February 14th marks National Donor Day. In addition to giving chocolates and roses, this is a great day to share the gift of life by signing up to become an organ donor.
National Donor Day was started in 1998 by the Saturn Corporation and its United Auto Workers partners with the support of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and many nonprofit health organizations. Today, you’ll find many nonprofit health organizations running blood drives and organ donation sign ups.
National Donor Day is also a good opportunity to say thank you to all the donors and donor families who gave others – like my father – a second chance.
Thank you to the family who chose to donate life on October 26, 1995.
