We would love to make this year our biggest year ever for number of Angels for Ally walkers/runners, as well as the amount of funds contributed to the Gift of Life!
Please help us continue our tradition of building a strong supportive team made of friends and family that can impact so many lives within our region!
Ally's story is just one of the hundreds that proved organ and tissue donation saved lives in 2010. Gift of Life Donor Program, the organ procurement organization for eastern Pennsylvania, southern New Jersey and Delaware, has diligently worked with area health care providers and families for more than three decades to facilitate donation and promote it as a life-saving means, and last year proved to be another successful year.
In 2010, the gifts of hundreds of generous organ donors helped the Gift of Life coordinate thousands of life-saving transplants over the course of the year. This was able to take place because of those donors and their family members who looked past their own tragedies and chose to save or enhance someone's life, like Ally and many others.
Last year, Gift of Life also coordinated bone recoveries, skin donations and cornea donations, among countless other tissue recoveries that will greatly improve the life of thousands of tissue recipients. While not as readily publicized as organ donation, these gifts are no less miraculous. Transplanted bone can help rebuild a damaged limb and save it from amputation. Donated corneas can restore sight, and burn victimscan receive donated skin to help them heal.
Today I'm asking you to think about the impact you could have by donating a few dollars or better yet, joining Ally's Angels April 18th in Philadelphia, PA.
Registration is $25.
SIgn up links are on Allys homepage as well.
Join the team:
As a group we can work together in the hopes that one day all patients who are in need of transplant receive their second chance at life.
Thanks for your time and consideration at saving more
lives in 2011. Shane, Jill, Ashley, & Ally
The walk again is:
