My parents told me what organ donation would do for others, back in 1972. They were already at the point where they felt it was good even though transplants were primative then. When the state put the "Organ Donor" on licenses in red letters I cheered.mFtrst responders and ER personnel would have the information in hand and not need to wait.

I wish I had known about the father's ride for OD Awareness, we need more people getting with the program and I would like to be in on any push for better education.
