To the Catholic Sentinel:

The Children’s Organ Transplant Association has assisted more than 2,000 patients by helping to raise funds for transplant-related expenses.

The Association has built extensive volunteer networks across the nation in an attempt to ensure that no child or young adult needing an organ or tissue transplant is excluded from a transplant waiting list due to a lack of funds.

We need your help to make sure that tragedies, like the one that was the catalyst in our founding, are not repeated.

Every day 18 people die wait ing for an organ transplant here in the United States. 

April is National Donate Life Month.  Please register today to become an organ donor. 

Then, encourage your friends, family members, neighbors and associates to take two simple, life-saving steps: register as an organ donor at www.donatelife.net or your state’s license bureau, and express your wish to be a donor to your family members.

You can do more.
