organ donation is beautiful
stories of living on
Shelby was born with a rare heart condition and needed a heart transplant at age 10. Thanks to a selfless gift from an organ donor, she is able to pursue her career in medicine and is thankful for every day.
At age 12, Lauren was diagnosed with hypertrophic cardiomyopathy and is currently on the waiting list for a new heart. She dreams of the day she has the energy to run at the park with her young daughter or teach her to throw a softball.
In July 2010, an accident took Michael’s life. But that wasn’t the end of Michael’s story. Michael saved five lives through organ donation and his legacy lives on through them.
LiveOnNY celebrates donation and brings the cause to life through our signature events:
donate life month
A month dedicated to encouraging Americans to register as organ donors, and to celebrating those that have saved lives by through donation
donor enrollment day
One day focused on educating and enrolling people to save the lives of the 10,000 New Yorkers currently waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant
It is a time for congregations to learn about the organ donor shortage, celebrate life and pray for those affected by donation and transplantation
