A stem cell transplant cured Arash of Diamond-Blackfan Anemia when he was 16. Years later, his stepmother's living kidney donation saved his life. Today, this healthy registered nurse is giving back by volunteering!
Our goal at Donate Life Northwest is to educate and encourage people to sign up on their state donor registry. Why? To offer hope to the parents of an 11-year-old boy given six months to live unless he receives a heart transplant. To give grieving families the knowledge their loved one left a selfless legacy. To join in celebration of lives saved and sight and mobility restored because a person's decision to donate was known and honored at their time of death. Because organ, eye and tissue donation is about one human being offering the gift of life to another.
