WLS-AM Gift of Hope Panel Discussion

Last Saturday, WLS-AM did an excellent hour long segment focusing on organ & tissue donation. Dave Bosch, Chair of Donate Life Illinois and Director of Communications for Gift of Hope, was joined by Northwestern transplant doctor John Friedewald as well as recipient Steve Ferkau and donor family member Anne Gulotta.
