For several years, The DON'T WAIT Project founder Lisa Bradshaw and her son produced an informative video about organ donation on the anniversary of her late husband's double-lung transplant. They produced this video eight years ago (current organ transplant statistics are provided below). When getting to the heart of the matter, although the statistics in the video are now outdated, the overall message still holds true. For more information about organ donation, contact Donate Life.
