How to save nine lives / April 09, 2012
Over 100,000 people are currently awaiting an organ transplant in the United States; more than 2,800 of them live in Virginia.

Have you considered organ and tissue donation.

Learn more about organ and tissue donation during April’s C.O.R.E. (Community Outreach Education) Program from Community Memorial Healthcenter (CMH). 

The program will be held on Tuesday, April 17 at 7 p.m. in the CMH Education Center at 125 Buena Vista Circle in South Hill.

There will be a comprehensive presentation and discussion covering all aspects of organ, eye and tissue donations. We’ll discuss what it means to be registered as a donor, if your religion supports organ donation, what will happen to your body if you are an organ donor, what it will mean to your family and much more.  We will answer all your questions so that you will leave with the information you need to make an informed decision when asked, “Do you want to be an organ, eye and tissue donor?”

Patti Dean, is the community education coordinator with the Transplant Services Division of LifeNet Health in Richmond, will be the speaker. She became a donor sister in 2001 and a liver recipient twice in 2006.

She now works for LifeNet Health, an Organ Procurement Organization, and spends her days educating the public about the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation.

Reservations are not required for this program; however, they are recommended. 

For more information or to make a reservation, please call (434) 774-2550.
