LifeGift urges registering to be organ and tissue donor

Posted:

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Did you know there are about 400 people in this area on the waiting list for a transplant?  That is according to LifeGift, the agency that tries to match organ donors with those in need. 

The problem is, you have to tell somebody if you want to be an organ donor.  Catherine Burch Graham, LifeGift Director of Communications, says, "One person can save up to 80 lives through organ and tissue donation and it's such a wonderful legacy to leave".

If you would like to learn more about organ donation, call the Lubbock office of LifeGift at (806) 798-5568 or go to www.DonateLifeTexas.org.

Organ and tissue transplants offer patients a new chance at healthy, productive, normal lives. You have the power to change someone's world by being a donor. It's about living. It's about Life.
