Ask a motorcycle enthusiast what they think of the term “organ donor” and you’ll likely get a heated reaction. For years, this slang term has been thrown at bikers by individuals who don’t understand or appreciate the passion for biking.
Lifeline of Ohio, the nonprofit organ procurement organization responsible for promoting organ and tissue donation in central and southeastern Ohio, is setting out to reclaim the phrase and show the public what an organ donor really is: a hero.
Just by signing up to be a donor at the time of your death, you are already someone’s hero. Eight lives can be saved by one person who donates organs, and more than 50 lives can be improved through tissue donation. Read how here.
We will be out and about at biker events across our service area this summer! Check out the upcoming events where we’ll be and stop by our booth! We have giveaways and free t-shirts and patches for registered organ donors. Not registered? Sign up onsite and be a hero.
