Krysta saved 5 lives, gave sight to 2 people and enhanced the lives of others through organ, tissue and corneal donation. One of our missions is to dispel the myths and promote the facts about donation. One way we do this is by talking to students & civic groups. We have even presented to a group of Brownie scouts.While only 2 out of 100 people will have the opportunity to become an organ donor, it is important to learn the facts.
“They’ll let you die if you are in a car accident because they want your organs” MYTH
This is the #1 myth about organ donation! We know it is not true. The EMT’s, doctors and nurses that attended to Krysta after she collapsed, never asked us about her wishes until she was declared brain dead. Check the facts – Gift Of Life * Busting the Myths
Placing “organ donor” on you driver’s license gives hope to those listed on the transplant waiting list. Teens getting their PA driver’s for the first time should have this information to make an informed decision. Decide if donation is right for you and make sure your family knows your decision.
