KY Circuit Clerks Celebrate Donate Life Month by Surpassing National Goal Registered Donors

SURFKY 



KENTUCKY (4/5/16) — For more than a decade the month of April has been about saving and healing lives.

Donate Life champions across the country fill the month of April with powerful testimonials to demonstrate the lifesaving message of donation and transplantation. The goal of National Donate Life Month is to make LIFE possible by educating and motivating individuals to register their decision to be organ, eye and tissue donors.

One of those champions is your Hopkins County Circuit Court Clerk, Karen McKnight, “This April is especially momentous because Kentucky has a very exciting announcement to make. I am honored to share that Kentucky has surpassed the national goal. Today, 50 percent of Kentuckians are registered donors. This is a point of pride for our Commonwealth and a symbol of hope for all those waiting for lifesaving transplants.”

Since 2007, the Circuit Court Clerks and their deputies have asked every Kentuckian getting a driver’s license or ID to join the Kentucky Organ Donor Registry. “It’s a question we are required to ask, but knowing what a difference it makes to families, gives this question even greater meaning. Joining the confidential Registry is stating your willingness to save lives, if you can. Every person who says ‘yes’ gives hope and shows support for patients in need,” says McKnight.  Continue reading
