New Lease on Life

HeartMany times as attorneys we are asked to help people during hard times - an illness, the death of a loved one, business downturn, tax issues. The contrast of an uplifting call can be so great that I wanted to share it.

One of my partners just stopped by to share with me that a client of his had just called to say he had had a successful heart transplant this past Saturday.  Just sit back a moment to consider the wonderousness of that call.  This gentleman had an operation that will extend his life by decades.  We have advanced so far in life altering surgery that he is on the phone 2 days later.  This miracle came as a gift of life from someone who had taken the time to complete an organ donation card.

Each of us has the ability to create a gift of life from a tragedy if we choose to do so.  Look at Consider Becoming an Organ Donor in New Jersey. Thinking about organ donation is not a usual New Years resolution, but as you are looking around for new actions to take in a new year, completing an organ donor card might be one to consider.
