Van Warped Tour 2017 – Mansfield, MA

This was our third year helping out the Chris Klug Foundation and New England Donor Services at the Vans Warped Tour. The main goal is teaching young adults attending the tour the importance of organ donation.P1200186

We had a great time meeting people, giving out prizes, and hanging out with the next generation of adults!

NHPR: The Exchange Radio Broadcast

During the lead up to the transplant surgery, I would scour the internet for others in similar situations, read the story, and then the information would trail off following surgery. I would wonder: ‘What happened?’ Based on our experiences, they likely are back to living healthy ‘normal’ lives. It’s been a while since our last post, and we will start posting some of our organ donation outreach activities here.

On Thursday, Logan was on New Hampshire Public Radio with my long time doctor, Dr. Gordon, and Alexandra Glazier, President and CEO of New England Donor Services. You can listen to the tape of the live broadcast here: http://nhpr.org/post/organ-donation-new-developments-common-misconceptions-and-ever-present-need. The emails and call-in questions were excellent, and caused some very good and thoughtful discussions!
