Organ Donation Policies around the World

with Tom Mone, CEO of OneLegacy

A limited supply of organs continues to hinder organ transplantation around the world. A significant percentage of potential organ donors are lost either to medical failure, or through an inability to obtain consent for donation.  Millions of people in the world have benefited from organ transplantation and it remains the primary treatment for kidney failure.  Listen in as Lori and Tom discuss policies and the evolution of transplantation and what the future holds for living and deceased organ donation in our own country and around the world.

To Remember Me is an inspiring essay written by Robert Noel Test in 1976. He told Abigail Van Buren that he had written it during his lunch break. He also told her he had only a high school education and wrote "for the fun of it."

Robert N. Test was one of the pioneers in promoting organ and tissue donations. His essay was first published in The Cincinnati Post, and later in Reader’s Digest. It was also published in the advice columns of Ann Landers and Dear Abby.
