Mile High Magazine 12/31/2023 Donor Alliance

Guest: Heather Burke PR/Communications Manager and Rhonda Hill is a kidney, pancreas and bone recipient and the wife of a donor.  The Donate Life float returns to the Rose parade this year to raise awareness of organ, eye and tissue donation.  The stories of hope reach millions of people just by the coverage they get not only for TV viewers but also for the people who are watching the parage live.  The Donor Alliance theme is Woven Together, Dance of Life.  Nearly 1,500 people are on the waiting list for a transplant in Colorado and Wyoming and more than 100,000 people nationally.  There are more a million lives saved with tissue donations.  One donor can save up to 8 lives with an organ donation and 75 with tissue donation. Registering to be a donor is so easy.  You can become a donor by checking yes when you are at the DMV or by going to their website.
