Examiner Organ Donation Series

Dad and Sam

Dad and Sam

Last week, we connected with Cathy Doheny at the Examiner as she posts regularly about organ and tissue donation. Currently, Cathy is doing a few feature posts on members of the Illinois transplant community.

This week, Cathy did a feature around Samantha Joos, daughter of donor family members Tim and Deb Joos, who are constantly volunteering and for DLI and spreading the word about organ/tissue donation.

Be sure to check out Cathy’s first post about Samantha as well as  the follow up interview (Part 1, Part 2) with her father Tim. It’s truly touching as Sam’s tissue donations helped save the lives of others in Illinois, Minnesota, Colorado and Korea.
