Mayor Soriano Presented Proclamation to Organ Transplant Group

PARSIPPANY — In recognition of National Donate Life Month to highlight awareness of the lifesaving gift of organ donation, Mayor Michael Soriano presented a proclamation to the Morris County Organ Transplant Group.  The group is an official regional group of the NJ Sharing Network.

Bob and Connie Keller looks on as Mayor Michael Soriano reads the Proclamation

One organ donor can save eight lives and one tissue donor can restore health to over 75 others. People of all ages, ethnic backgrounds and religions are touched by donation and by the serious shortage of organ donors that exists. Currently, there are nearly New Jersey residents and Americans awaiting life-saving transplant operations. There are thirteen waitlisted in Parsippany.

Registering as an organ and tissue donor is easy at a local Motor Vehicle Agency or click here.

The Transplant Group meets the first Wednesday of the month in the Community Room at the Parsippany Police Complex. The next meeting is on Wednesday, May 2 with a special “Heart Transplant Roundtable” featuring local heart recipients and Dr Marc Goldschmidt, Medical Director of the Heart Success Program and Mechanical Circulatory Support Programs at Morristown Medical Center.

For more information on the group contact Nick at (973) 984-6966 or e-mail: mcorgantransplantgroup@gmail.com.
