This morning we talked to our Secretary of State, Ruth Johnson about signing up to be an organ donor. Her office has made it super easy to get registered.
Did you know that Michigan is the 6th WORST state for organ donations? Maybe you don't give it much thought until it hits close to home.
My brother just celebrated his 2nd "heart" birthday after receiving a transplant in New York. He...and our family...are eternally grateful to that donor.
Michigan currently has 3,000 people on the organ transplant waiting list. One donor can save up to 8 lives and enhance the lives of more than 50 people!
There are no age restrictions AND Johnson debunked the myth that cancer survivors such as myself cannot be donors.
DO IT! You can't take it with you.
Anyone can join the Michigan Organ Donor Registry by visiting www.Michigan.gov/sos or any Secretary of State office.
