Smells like the holiday season! This year, you’ll be able to wrap up a sweet gift of hope fresh out of the oven to share with a loved one: the 2015 annual report/2016 calendar, “Hopes and Dreams Take Flight.”

Joey Gase is more than a race car driver; he is an advocate for organ, tissue and eye donation. 

Joey’s mother, Mary Jo, died suddenly of a brain aneurysm in April 2011. Just 18 at the time, Joey made the courageous decision to donate her organs. He has been an advocate since that time.

Every year since 2011, la familia (the family) Rodriguez gets free nuggets from Chick-fil-A.

LifeGift is evolving at a rapid pace as we find more ways to offer hope to our community – for those waiting for transplants, those receiving transplants and those who make it happen. These are exciting times as we work hard to improve the availability of organs and tissue for transplantation, medical therapy, education and research.

She was in a lot of pain.

Karen Basinet was only 30 years old when she found out her liver had been “eaten” by a benign tumor, known as focal nodular hyperplasia (FNH). The tumor was taking over the middle and lower left portions of her liver. (Just so you have an idea, the average size of a liver is 13.5 cm and it weighs 2.6 lbs. Get the picture? It’s pretty big!)
