Team SC Counting down the Days until the Donate Life Transplant Games of America
On Thursday, March 13, 2014, several members of Team South Carolina (transplant recipients, donor family members and living donors), along with LifePoint and Donate Life South Carolina, gathered at the LifePoint office in Charleston to celebrate the countdown to the 2014 Donate Life Transplant Games of America. Members of Team SC signed the official Donate Life Transplant Games of America Flag which will continue traveling across the country for signatures from more than 40 participating teams. The flag eventually stops in Houston, Texas where it will fly over BBVA Compass Stadium during the Opening Ceremonies of the Games in July.
The Donate Life Transplant Games of America is a multi-sport festival event that celebrates organ, eye, and tissue donation. More than 3,000 participants from across the United States will travel to Houston for the five day event this summer.
Anybody interested in joining Team SC should contact Team Manager Shirley McAdams at 800-462-0755 (X 1080) or McAdamsS@LifePoint-SC.org.

View "The Power of Two" Documentary
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.
This short video was produced by Donate Life South Carolina to increase awareness about the need for more organ and tissue donors. It also gives information about the South Carolina Organ and Tissue Donor Registry.
