To The Telegram,

April is National Donate Life Month and in the spirit of giving, I would like to encourage all Wisconsin residents to register to be an organ, tissue and eye donor.

This issue has affected me personally, as I am one of the very lucky and grateful individuals alive today because of another person's generosity. In November 1993, I received the gift of a heart transplant from and amazing donor. Sadly, there are many people who die while they wait for their transplant, simply because the organ they need is not available.

We all have the power to save lives. One person's gift can save or enhance up to 60 lives through donation, providing recipients a chance to return to a normal, active life. Visit www.WisconsinDonor.org fore more information.

Don't take your organs to heaven. Heaven knows we need them here.
