USA Today's Olympic Preview features transplant recipient Chris

U.S. Department of Health and Human Services

A U.S. Department of Health and Human Services print ad recently ran in an Olympic Preview published by USA Today. The ad features transplant recipient Chris, who became a husband, father, athlete—even an Ironman—after receiving his kidney transplant. It is a good reminder that transplant recipients, organ donors, and organ donor families are stars. View the digital version of the ad here. It’s on page 15.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ television, radio, and print PSAs—including Chris’s—are available for your use as you spread the message about the successes of transplantation and the critical need for donors. You can download them here.
