Went to the Capitol today for Donate Life Day to help for the event and it was a perfect day! The Donor Network and Donate Life Arizona holds this event every year and includes meetings with the legislature to reinforce the importance of organ donation and how it helps save and improve lives! It was also very touching to see donor families present along with living donors, transplant recipients and other caring people. It was a showcase for the Wall of Life where my name and story have also been posted along with many amazing individual stories. It feels so great to participate in this effort and to pay it back in honor of my donor and donor family to help others!
