Wilson Memorial Encourages You To Share The Gift Of Life

Each day, 18 people die waiting for organ transplants that didn’t come in time. For the second year, Wilson Memorial Hospital has joined the Ohio Hospital Association Donate Life Partnership to help save lives by educating our community about the importance of organ, eye and tissue donation and increasing the number of registered donors. Tom Boecker, President and CEO, Wilson Memorial, encourages you to join him in support of this cause by registering today.  

“The lack of registered donors in America results in a tragic loss of life every day, but there is a known solution,” said Boecker. “By registering as a donor, you have the unique opportunity to give hope to the 3,400 Ohioans awaiting life-saving transplants.”

You can help with three easy steps. First, visit www.DonateLifeOhio.org to learn more about donation and how to register. Do not be discouraged by your age  or past medical history – anyone can be a potential donor.

Second, talk with your family about your decision to register as an organ, eye and tissue donor. You can even share your donation preference on Facebook, using the “Life Events” feature on your Timeline.

Finally, tell others about the need in our community, and how every person can make a difference. One person has the potential to save eight lives through organ donation and enhance 50 more through cornea and tissue donation.
