Give to the Max Day 2014

People are waiting—for a phone call, an opportunity, a new life. They are waiting for hope.

The holiday season is about giving. For LifeSource it is about giving hope to the more than 3,770 people in our communities waiting for the life-saving gift of organ and tissue donation.

You can give hope this season. By contributing to LifeSource you invest in public education to increase the number of registered donors. Registering as a donor is the single most important action to ensure leaving a legacy of life for others. When more people are registered as donors, more lives are saved.

GiveMN-David

David is waiting: David Costello is most comfortable standing on the top of a mountain, taking a deep breath, and heading into the fresh powder.

David Costello is not comfortable standing still. Waiting. But that’s his life now: he needs a transplant, and he might wait many more years for that lifesaving gift.

Waiting is not living; it is a pause before the rest of your life begins.

David was just 21 when he was diagnosed with two serious illnesses: Crohn’s Disease and Primary Sclerosing Cholangitis.

Doctors told him that he would eventually need a transplant. David knew what the word “transplant” meant in a way that few others do; a childhood friend received several transplants and later David’s father would wait almost five years for a heart and kidney transplant.

He knew what the wait list was, and what a transplant meant on the other side. Someone would be his hero, his donor.

Eventually, David’s illnesses progressed to the point that he entered major organ failure. He nearly died. With great care and strength, he recovered enough to be placed on the waitlist for a liver transplant, where he still waits today.

David is not comfortable standing still.

He hopes for the day when the phone rings, and that ring will mean his life will be saved. He thinks, too, about the loss another family will suffer. He already thinks—in the quiet moments—how, if he is lucky enough to receive this precious gift, what he will do to honor the one who will give.

At 28, David is still waiting.

Join LifeSource this holiday season as we give hope to those waiting for the call.

With your support LifeSource can create a better future—one where everyone receives the organ and tissue transplant they need.

  • Give to the Max Day is November 13, 2014. Make a contribution, share the link with friends and family, and let them know why you are giving.
  • Volunteer to provide a hand-made wrap to the LifeSource Wrapped in Hugs program.

Together we can give hope—hope to those waiting for the call. Thank you for your commitment to our community.
