Discussion With a Heart Transplant Recipient

Last week, Donate Life Illinois volunteer Bob Roen visited New Trier High School as part of the Walter and Connie Payton Foundation’s Youth for Life Program.  The Chicago Bears president’s wife along with two Bears players joined Bob to educate students about the importance of organ and tissue donation.

In dire need of a heart transplant to survive, Bob received his second chance at life in 2002 from a young man by the name of Mike Brown Jr. A reporter from mouthpiecesports.com was on location to capture some video of Bob, who shared the following gratefulness for the gift Mike gave him. Be sure to check out Bob’s story.

Happy Friday,

Scott
