30 Heroes in 30 Days

Donate Life Maryland is running a special campaign during the month of April to celebrate Donate Life Month. The campaign is called 30 Stories / 30 Days and is designed to honor 30 heroes. Each day in April, the initiative will feature a different organ donor from Maryland by telling their story and how they made a difference and saved lives with one simple decision - signing up to be an organ and tissue donor.

Donate Life Maryland has one goal with this initiative - encouraging people to register as an organ and tissue donor. Natalie Benavides, Executive Director of Donate Life Maryland, said the organization "... wants to remind people about the life on the other end ... There is someone who gets to see their daughter get married ... Real stories of people who get to return to work." Maryland is blessed with nearly 2.2 million registered organ and tissue donors which translates to just under 50% of the state's adult population. If you have not made the decision to be an organ and tissue donor, I want to encourage you to do so today. You can visit the Donate Life America website (click here or on the banner above) to learn more and find how to register in your state.
