(Philadelphia, PA) – RQ Productions is proud to present “Eight Parts of Life,” an organ donation awareness stage play and organ donor registration drive. The play is a compelling story about organ donation and was created to help facilitate awareness, provide education, dispel negative myths and communicate the incredible need to increase the number of registered and living organ donors. Currently in the U.S., more than 121,000 men, women and children are awaiting a life-saving organ transplant that may never arrive. Nationally, averages of 21 people die each day while waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant.

The event will take place at The Church of Christian Compassion where prominent guest speakers will also expound on the topics of organ transplantation, organ donation, registration and spiritual acceptance. Gift of Life Donor Program – the organ procurement organization serving the eastern half of PA, southern NJ and DE – will be at the event, providing educational information and encouraging individuals to register.

Guest Speaker: Clint Burns, Program Coordinator for Organ and Tissue Donation, Johns Hopkins School of Medicine
