Last week, Donate Life Illinois kicked off the first of  a year-long series of shows we’re supporting for US99’s “live country” concerts.

The show was a huge success as Phil Vassar rocked the stage and fans we’re encouraged to learn about organ/tissue donation and sign up in the state’s registry. Check out the photos below as well as this fun video of US99 show host Drew Walker prompting the crowd to show their green organ donation wristbands.

Donate Life Illinois Activity Round Up

June 12, 2009

First off, be sure to check out this great organ donation story in the Morris Daily Herald today about Viridiana Lopez’s gift to others and her family’s support of organ/tissue donation.


Tomorrow, DLI will be out and about at Soldier Field for the US99 Kenny Chesney concert, giving away backstage passes, signed merchandise from the artists (yes, even a signed Kenny Chesney guitar!) and of course, encouraging attendees to register as organ/tissue donors. You bet Morgan will be there.

In addition, DLI volunteer Colette Jordan is taking our donation message half a world away to Switzerland! Colette was recently selected to represent transplant recipients from the U.S. to participate with 11 other solid transplant recipients as part of an advisory board in Zurich. See Colette’s post on her blog and stay tuned for updates!


DLI volunteer and lung transplant recipient Steve Ferkau is also taking the DLI message out to the west coast to be honored at the inaugural Donate Life Hollywood Film Festival. Woo-Hoo!


Last, the DLI team will be heading down to Saint Louis for the first part of next week to attend the national Donate Life America conference. Looking forward to catching up with our state affiliates and colleagues.

Whew. Lots going on, keep us posted on any of your events and happenings!
