What questions do you have about organ donation?

Radio Smart Talk for Friday, August 31:

Friday’s Radio Smart Talk will put the spotlight on organ donation.  Joining us will be John Green, the director of Community Relations for the Gift of Life Donor Program to answer questions about organ and tissue donation. 

You may be surprised at how many questions and myths surround organ donations.  For example, a study released earlier this year found that about a quarter of the respondents believed doctors wouldn’t try to save the life of someone designated as a donor.

Others thought that they couldn’t donate because they have a history of illness or that they were too old to donate.

About 80,000 people across the country are awaiting organ transplants.  Some will die while they’re still waiting.

Also joining us on the program will a Middletown man who is a kidney recipient and another Pennsylvanian whose son is waiting for a suitable liver.
