LifeLink of Georgia is a non-profit organ and tissue recovery organization with the goal of matching donors with needs to save lives. The Donate Life Georgia registry was created in 2008 to allow Georgians an easy and user-friendly means of registering to become an organ, tissue and eye donor. Up to eight lives can be saved through an organ donation, and dozens more lives can be enhanced through tissue and eye donations.
LifeLink of Georgia/Donate Life Georgia is the official registry of the State of Georgia for organ and tissue donation. The registry interacts with the State’s Driver’s License registry to form one combined data base.
It is easy to register, and Cassie Borderieux of LifeLink of Georgia explains how on the September edition of 8700 on dctv23 (channel 23 on Comcast, channel 99 on AT&T U-verse, and simulcast on www.dctv23.com) at 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. daily.
Ms. Borderieux will also be part of Family Day of the September Saturdays Festival celebration on Saturday, September 17th, where she, Douglas County Coroner Randy Daniel, and Chief Deputy Coroner Mark Alcarez will be sharing information on the program.
Organ and tissue donation is a serious and personal decision, but it positively affects the lives of many others who are in desperate need.
