Donors Are Heroes

While waiting for his life-saving heart transplant during the spring of 2000, Don Freeman and his wife Renee realized firsthand the need for and scarcity of organ donations. Since then, Don, Renee and a group of dedicated friends have committed themselves to raising public awareness of the importance of becoming an organ and tissue donor, to dispel myths and provide a means for people to share their donation wishes with family and friends. "Organ Donors Are Heroes, They Choose to Save Lives" is the group of friends/volunteers supporting Gift of Life and its charitable supporting organization, the Transplant Foundation.

Among the sponsored programs, the Donors Are Heroes committee has helped fund the It's About Life grants and "Spirt for Life" Student Summits.
