Kevin Myer is the president and chief executive officer for LifeGift and Brian Rothermel is a heart transplant recipient who is about to celebrate being 24 years post-transplant. He was diagnosed with a deadly heart disease when he was in his 20s. After being placed on a waiting list, he received the heart of a young woman. He eventually met with her family and it's as powerful a story as it is moving.
The family's act of kindness and generosity is one we can all make. Signing up to be an organ donor only takes a couple of minutes. To donate a heart, kidney, liver, and other vital organs, can literally save up to 8 people. Countless more are profoundly helped through tissue donations like skin, bones and heart valves.
