"I'm ready to say, 'OK, God, here I am. Let's go,'" said Dale.
She's waiting for a double organ transplant, so every time her phone rings, Dale knows it could be the call to change her life.
"It has been a long, hard road with a lot of difficult, difficult hurdles to jump. But you know, every scar that I have on my body, I consider those a battle that I won," she said.
Doctors diagnosed Dale as diabetic when she was 11 years old. After years of health programs, now she needs a new kidney and pancreas. Dale spends 12 hours each week in dialysis, a part-time job of it's own, she said.
Dale said she wants to raise awareness for organ donation, and raise money for after the transplant, and she's doing it by raising up her message with billboards. Three can be found around Eugene, one on Highway 99 and Pattison, one on I-5 at the Highway 58 exit, and one on Beltline Road near W. 11th Avenue.
