Biking for organ donation

A Moss Bluff, LA heart / kidney transplant recipient is currently on a 270-mile long bike ride to raise awareness for organ and tissue donation. Jack Tillery left his hometown of Moss Bluff on Saturday with plans to arrive in New Orleans on Wednesday, April 27th. Jack says there are three main reasons for the ride - "... to glorify God through the gift of life, to honor my donor family for unselfishly saying yes to organ donation, which allowed me to receive a second chance at life, and to express appreciation to Oschner Medical Center and my transplant team."

Have a safe trip, Jack.
