LifeGift will participate in a new initiative to educate, inspire and inform multicultural communities about organ, eye and tissue donation, spearheaded by the Association for Multicultural Affairs in Transplantation (AMAT) and Donate Life America (DLA). Here is a short snapshot on what this observance is all about.

Summer is a wonderful time to include reading as an extracurricular activity. Along with improving your overall health, curling up with a good book can be the best way to pass the time. A study done at the University of Sussex found that reading can reduce stress by 68 percent. As well as reducing stress, reading can also be helpful for professional growth.
As the day approached for the 13th Annual Fort Worth 2nd Chance Run with almost daily rain and storms in the forecast, we all hoped that Mother Nature would be kind and hold off the rain just long enough for us to host the event. Thankfully, we woke up on Saturday, May 16 to a perfect day. The morning couldn’t have been nicer with cool temps, gentle breezes and overcast skies.

For the first time, Donate Life America is recognizing Older Americans Month as an official Donate Life America observance. Older Americans Month recognizes and celebrates older Americans for taking charge of their health, getting engaged within their communities and making a positive impact in the lives of others, including registering as organ, eye and tissue donors.
