Living Legacy Foundation Wants You To Become An Organ Donor

Posted: Updated:

WMDT 47 NEWS - More than 115,000 people across the nation are waiting for a life-saving organ. 2,200 of those live in Maryland.

That's where the Living Legacy Foundation of Maryland comes in. They are hoping you check "YES" on your divers license, to become an organ donor. 500 Maryland residents provided the gift of life last year. Robert Colfish and Tammie Mitchell of Berlin are an example of that. Tammie lost her son at the hands of a murderer, while Robert lost his in an accident. Both were given the option to make their child an organ donor.

"It really is the best thing, that's how we feel they are still with us, and his heart is beating in someone else, you know giving his children a father to have," Robert tells us.

'It's hard because you wonder what our children are missing out on, so it's always emotional. But Living Legacy has made it possible for us to feel like we still have a connection with a piece of our children," Tammy adds.
