Viewpoint: Organ donation

Posted: Updated:

Last week I hope you were able to see our Healthcare Today program, about the importance of becoming an organ donor.

One amazing fact shared, was one donor can impact up to 60 recipients. Many donations will be life saving, but all will be life changing events, for those on waiting lists around the country.

We featured one woman from South Georgia, Sheila McLendon, who because of liver transplant from a donor, was able to raise her two children, and continue a normal life with her family.

If you would like to see the program, you can find it on our website, at www.WALB.com/healthcaretoday.

It covers many common misconceptions, and positive benefits of becoming a donor.

You can also go to the website, donatelifegeorgia.org, and get answers to all questions you may have.

We encourage you to serious consider becoming an organ donor.
