Celebrating the Role of Multicultural Communities in Organ, Eye & Tissue Donation

The Association for Multicultural Affairs in Transplantation (AMAT) and Donate Life America (DLA) joined forces in 2015 to develop Donate Life ECHO, which stands for Every Community Has Opportunity. It is celebrated July 10 – 23, 2016, as a nationwide observance designed to reach multicultural communities.

The observance has two objectives: one is to focus on the power of sharing one’s personal decision to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor with members of one’s community; the second is to encourage registered donors to ask members of their personal networks and extended communities to talk about organ, eye and tissue donation and register as donors.

Through the ECHO concept of reiteration and repetition—with people sharing the life-affirming message of donation within their community—more lives will be saved and healed. Multicultural communities play a critical role in America’s transplant system. They save and heal lives as donors of organs, eyes and tissue, need lifesaving kidney transplants in disproportionately high numbers, and serve patients and families as healthcare professionals. For more information, visit AMAT1.org.

LifePoint and Donate Life South Carolina are posting a daily ECHO through our social media sites. We are also encouraging our volunteers and social media fans to do the same. Register to become an organ, eye and tissue donor at DonateLifeSC.org or at RegisterMe.org.

 

Congratulations to Team South Carolina!

The 2016 Donate Life Transplant Games of America were held in Cleveland, Ohio June 10-15. Team SC consisted of 23 competitors, 9 donor families/friends and 63 supporters. Congratulations to our competitors on winning a total of 61 medals in their competitions – 27 GOLD, 14 SILVER and 20 BRONZE. Complete listing of our medal winners (PDF 28KB).

Our donor families attended seminars and workshops, a special quilt-pinning ceremony honoring their loved ones and presented medals to winners at some events. A special highlight of the Games was the Donor Tribute Ceremony, when all donors (deceased and living) were recognized.

The Power of Two

Everyone in the transplant community knows that it takes power to give the gift of life through organ donation, survive the wait and thrive after receiving a transplant. Twin sisters and double lung transplant recipients Ana Stenzel and Isa Stenzel Byrnes, and other members of the transplant community worldwide, show what power can do in the documentary film “The Power of Two.” Called “compelling” and “poetic” by the Wall Street Journal, and an “inspiring triumph” by Golden Globe® nominated actor Jack Black, this winner of ten film festival awards has entertained, educated and inspired audiences globally.
