There's an article about me in the Las Vegas Review Journal today.  We want to thank the RJ for getting the word out.
I was on KLAS, channel 8 news in Las Vegas.
I was on KSAT, news in San Antionio, TX.

You can find our more about my condition by clicking on the link below that will take you to the UCLA Healthcare Transplantation Services website page regarding Intestinal Transplantation at the Dumont-UCLA Transplant Center:

Transplantation saves lives, but only if you help.  All you need to do is say yes to organ and tissue donation on your donor card and/or driver's license, sign up on your states donor registry (if there is one) and discuss you decision with your family.

Each day about 70 people receive an organ transplant, but another 16 people on the waiting list die because not enough organs are available.
Talk to your family members about organ and tissue donation so they know your wishes.  Even if you've signed something, your family may be asked to give consent before donation can occur. 
Here's a link to the Organ Procurement and Transplantation Network:

Here's a link to the current organ wait list statistics:

Here's a link to the Official U.S. Government Web site for organ donation:
You will find a lot of great information about Workplace Partnership for Life programs where you find resources to increase awareness about organ donation at your workplace.  Why don't you sign up your company for this program today?

God Bless You and Your Family
