Every Community Has Opportunity to Donate Life

The Association for Multicultural Affairs in Transplantation and Donate Life America joined forces in 2015 to develop Donate Life ECHO (Every Community Has Opportunity), a nationwide observance designed to reach multicultural communities. It has two objectives: to focus on the power of sharing one’s personal decision to register as an organ, eye, and tissue donor; and to encourage registered donors to ask members of their personal networks and communities to talk about organ, eye, and tissue donation.

AzHHA members at Donor Network of Arizona are working hard to highlight the power of Donate Life ECHO in Arizona. Recently a story of a Mesa family finding solace in their grief, knowing that their 21-year-old daughter who died in a car crash has already helped 5 others through the donation of her organs.

Once you have had a chance to look over some of this life-changing and lifesaving information, we’d love to hear your thoughts about it. Driving important conversations around the health issues affecting the people of our state is one more way we are working toward our long-term goal of one day making Arizona the Healthiest State in the Nation!
