You Can Be a Hero: Saving Lives through Organ & Tissue Donation

One organ and tissue donor can save up to eight lives and restore health to 50 others. Unfortunately, every day 21 people die waiting for a life-saving organ transplant. Join Rutland Regional Medical Center for an overview of organ and tissue donation and transplantation on Tuesday, April 12 from 6-7:30pm at the Franklin Conference Center at the Howe Center in Rutland.

Shaina Kaye, Hospital and Community Service Specialist from the Center for Donation & Transplant, New York and Vermont and Kerry Ellis of Rutland Regional Medical Center’s Marrow Donor Program will be joined by Jim Grout of Westminster, Vermont who will share a personal experience when his son became an organ donor.

The program is free and open to the public. Registration is required. Register online or call 802.772.2400.
