Events and Observances
Donate Life Wyoming is proud to partner with NASCAR driver, and organ, eye and tissue donation advocate, Joey Gase, to encourage Wyoming residents to Show Your Heart for National Donate Life Month this April. Joey will be at the Old Chicago at 1734 Meadowland Dr. in Cheyenne on Monday, April 3rd from 5pm-7pm to show his appreciation for supporters of organ, eye and tissue donation. Show the hearts on your driver license for the chance to meet Joey and paint a heart on his car.
Gase was only 18 when his mother, Mary Jo, died of a brain aneurysm in 2011, and he made the decision to donate her organs and tissues. He races in her honor and is now as passionate about promoting organ, eye and tissue donation as he is about racing.
Here in Wyoming, there are nearly 200 people waiting for a lifesaving organ transplant and hundreds more that could benefit from eye and tissue donations. You can Show Your Heart in support of organ, eye and tissue donation during National Donate Life Month. Register to be a donor at the event on April 3rd or visit DonateLifeWyoming.org to sign-up anytime. #ShowYourHeartWY
