Celebrate National Donor Sabbath This Weekend

thanx_hands_rgb

November 13-15 marks the official celebration of National Donor Sabbath – a time for members of faith communities to focus on the life-affirming gifts of hope passed to others by organ, eye, tissue, marrow and blood donors.

Nationwide, faith leaders will participate in services and programs to educate their congregations about donation and transplantation and the critical need for donors. Unfortunately, misconceptions about religious views on organ donation continue to be a major barrier to registration. You can check out a comprehensive list of religious views on donation on organdonor.gov and I’ve also included a video below that provides insight from Gift of Hope.

Hop over to Gift of Hope’s site to learn how to participate in National Donor Sabbath in Illinois and also check out this post from our colleague Glenn on the Donate Life blog to learn more.

    S due to ulcer iusess. Elevation of my leg doesn’t do much other than keep the cyst from draining into my calf and sometimes slightly relieves my pain. My orthopedist is frustrated — doesn’t want to “go in there” again. I feel pretty much useless and dependent on others to a ridiculous point. I still haven’t givien up hope that somewhere, somehow there’s an answer. In the meantime, my derrier seems to be expanding at an exponentioal rate as I spend more time on it.
