In recent weeks, many of us have been rushing about in search of the perfect gift for someone special in our lives. After much thoughtful consideration, we are confident that we truly found the perfect gift - - but are we sure we’re giving the greatest gift possible?

Someone, possibly even someone in our community, is going to lose a someone special this holiday season because their unhealthy or diseased organs stop working before an organ donor can be located.

And it's also quite possible that sometime during this holiday season, some unexpected accident could take the life of an individual that would have been the perfect donor match.

Instead of two deaths, the life of one of those individuals could have been saved - - if only the other had been an organ donor.
