WAITING 🖤in honor of Organ Donor Awareness Month, a throwback to the image we used to promote Organ Donor Awareness after my husband’s life saving double lung transplant. Howard was placed on the “waiting list” 8 years ago. We are grateful for Howard’s selfless and loving donor, to the organ transplant community, the medical team at @nyphospital, the tireless work of @liveonnewyork the continued support of @zarosfamilybakery & our family and friends. 🖤
There is a dire shortage of organ eye and tissue donors in the US.
Did you know? - More than 100,000 people in the US are waiting for life saving organ transplants, 10,000 in NYS
- Every 10 minutes someone is added to the waitlist - Someone dies every 18 minutes while waiting - Every donor can save up to 8 lives and improve up to 50 lives through organ, eye and tissue donation
- If you aren’t a donor, please visit htttp:donatelife.net or sign up through your @facebook profile 📷 by @stuzaro at Grand Central Terminal, NYC. Photo is available, proceeds of the sale will go to LiveOnNy and their efforts to save lives through organ donation - #tbt #organdonation #donatelife #organdonation #grateful #sharelife #giftoflife #livewithart #romanoffelements
