Article on man waiting for kidney transplant shows need for more organ donors

Editor:

Ginny Kropf’s article “Medina Man… waiting for Transplant” explains the lack of organ donations from one man’s perspective. An excellent portrayal of the human costs from the transplant bottleneck.

To put it in a blunter terms: Nationally, New York State is lowest in donor percentage (excluding Puerto Rico).

In New York State, County Donor percentage is lowest in Orleans County. Lowest of the low!

Why?

I don’t know but civic leaders and educators could certainly increase awareness of this life-saving process.
