Eighteen people die each day waiting for an organ, but just one organ and tissue donor can save up to 60 lives.  MSUM’s Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA) is working with two local organizations, Alexa’s Hope and LifeSource, to generate more awareness about organ and tissue donation and to in turn, hopefully get more registered donors.

There will be an organ donor panel on April 30th at 7 p.m, in the Comstock Memorial Union at MSUM. At the event local families will speak about how organ and tissue donation has affected them. This event is free and open to the public. To learn more about organ donation, or Alexa’s hope and LifeSource visit www.unos.orgwww.alexashope.org, and www.life-source.org.

PRSSA would like to thank Treasure Island Coins, and Vision Bank for their sponsorship for this event.

Positive Reactions is a student run PR agency at MSUM.
