To the editor,

April is National Donate Life Month, and I would like to encourage all Isanti-Chisago County residents to register to be an organ, tissue and eye donor. 

This issue has affected me personally. I am one of the very lucky and grateful individuals alive today because of another person’s generosity. 

In July 2016 I received the gift of a double lung transplant from an amazing donor. Sadly, there are many people who die while they wait for their transplant simply because the organ they need is not available.  

We all have the power to save lives. One person’s gift can save or enhance up to 75 lives through donation, providing recipients a chance to return to a normal, active life. 

Visit www.DonateLifeMN.org for more information.
