Advocate Spotlight: Dana Rojas

Dana with her dad, Al

Donor Alliance volunteers and advocates are the heart and soul of our efforts to inspire and inform our community about the importance of signing up to be an organ, eye and tissue donor in Colorado and Wyoming. Each of our volunteers and advocates has their own unique and inspiring story to tell. This month, we’re featuring Dana Rojas from Colorado Springs, CO! Dana’s dad is waiting for a lifesaving kidney transplant.

What is your favorite memory volunteering for Donor Alliance? Meeting other families and sharing our stories. We all have different paths that we have been on that have joined us in this volunteer opportunity.

What is your proudest accomplishment? Becoming a mother. It’s better than I ever could have imagined.

What song would you sing at karaoke night? Tom’s Diner.

What are some of your favorite hobbies? I love to read, hike, run in the Garden of the Gods and attend community events.

If you could take an all-expenses paid vacation, where would you go? I would love to tour Italy. It is rich in history and romanticism.

What is the last book you read or movie you saw? Would you recommend it? The last book I read was The Four Agreements, I revisit this book at least once a year and I learn a new application after each read. I would absolutely recommend this book. The Four Agreements provides you with four guiding principals to live by and helps me to refocus.

What is the best piece of advice you’ve ever received? That your entire life will be different every ten years. Enjoy the happy and joyous occasions and learn from the hardships. Nothing is permanent, be thankful for the what is happening now, it will all change before you know it.
