Mile High Magazine 12/26/2021 Donor Alliance

Guest: Tony Young, heart and kidney recipient and Cheryl Talley, Director of Communications and Public Relations The Donate Life float returns to the Rose parade this year to raise awareness of organ, eye and tissue donation.  The Donor Alliance theme is courage to hope.  One donor can save up to 8 lives with an organ donation and 75 with tissue donation.  Nearly 2,000 people are on the waiting list for a transplant in Colorado and Wyoming.  Tony had a heart and kidney transplant in 2020.  He had heart issues starting at 25, he had a heart attack before 25 and a second one at 30.  A few years after his second heart attack he started to experience cognitive heart failure.      https://www.donoralliance.org/
