When a kidney donation is the only option.

How did Kevin and his son, Ryan, gain more time together through kidney donation?

Kevin Harris faced kidney disease for years. When two people made the decision to be living donors, it turned Kevin’s wait for a kidney into hope. Thanks to altruistic organ donors, Kevin was given two more chances at life, 20 more birthdays, and countless memories. Kevin was also able to create more cherished memories with his son, Ryan Harris, a former Denver Bronco and Super Bowl 50 champion. 

Making a broader impact.

Organ donation not only saves lives, it also has a ripple effect. Loved ones, friends, and acquaintances are able to have more time than they otherwise would not have had with the transplant recipient. In Kevin’s case, his kidney donations allowed him to resume his life. He could witness his son’s wedding, Super Bowl win, and the joy of becoming a grandparent.Ryan Harris and his Father, Kevin, who received a kidney donation from 2 people.

“Registering as a donor after passing away is a simple gift to give all fathers out there this Father’s Day. To all the fathers on the waitlist, all the fathers with family members on the waitlist, and the fathers who may potentially need transplants in the future, you are giving the greatest gift of their life.”

In conclusion, Father’s Day serves as a powerful reminder of the significance of organ donation and the profound impact it can have on the lives of fathers and their families. By registering as organ donors, we can give the ultimate gift to fathers in need, providing them with hope, and more time. Organ donation allows fathers on the waitlist to witness milestones, celebrations, and the joys of parenthood. This Father’s Day, let us honor fathers by educating ourselves about becoming an organ and tissue donor, sharing our decision with our families, and saying “yes” the next time we obtain our driver license or state ID. Together, we can make a lasting difference and contribute to the precious gift of life for fathers and countless others in need.

You can also make the decision to gift the gift of life today. Register as an organ and tissue donor and contribute to saving and healing lives. One person can save up to eight lives through organ donation and save and heal up to 75 lives through tissue donation.
