  1. Scott,
    You are simply amazing at the tremendous inertia you have created for organ and tissue donation. Continue the great work and look forward to collaborating with “I Am. Are You” in the future.

    Thanks Glenn! I can hardly take credit though as it’s the community as a whole that continues to synch together in these great outreach efforts. There are so many hardworking OPO folks, transplant doctors, nurses and of course volunteers, donor family members and recipients like yourself that help to comprise the larger donation story. It motivates me everyday.
