Even if you think you’re too old to be an organ, eye, or tissue donor, keep reading! Chances are you will enjoy hearing Lemuel Bradshaw, our Keynote Speaker, explain why youthful skin is not nearly as desirable to a tissue bank as skin that is no longer collagen-rich and taut. Along the way, you will also learn why and how to include organ, eye and tissue donation in your end-of-life planning so that your legacy lives on in the lives of others.
Just so you’ll know, the call for donations has never been more urgent. Every ten minutes, a new name is added to the list of more than 119,000 people who need an organ transplant to give them a second chance at life.
When you hear Lemuel Bradshaw talk about final gifts, you will immediately understand why he receives rave reviews every time he talks to our end-of-life options classes about getting their ducks in a row.
No one knows about final gifts better than Lemuel. Only because of a family of heroes was he able to survive and thrive after a virus had irreparably damaged his heart when he was only 28. Thanks to this family, Lemuel received a life-saving heart transplant 17 years ago, allowing him to attend The University of Texas, get married, raise a family, play with his grandkids, and become a full-time advocate on behalf of United Tissue Resources and Donate Life Texas.
