Edit - I realize that not everyone can participate in the following poll...many people have been organ donors for a while and many others are unable to be an organ donor for many reasons...this post is not meant to make anyone feel left out or guilty. The goal of this poll is simply to find out who may have been moved by Tricia's story to become an organ donor. I purposely didn't add other options, such as "I have always been an organ donor and have always known it's important", but please, feel free to leave a comment about yourself if you are unable to participate in the poll. Thanks!
During the 40 days that Tricia was on the transplant list (Feb. 22 - April 2), approximately 712 people (sons and daughters, parents, siblings, grandparents) died while awaiting an organ donation.
I have literally received thousands of comments and emails from people who have told me that they have become organ donors for the first time because of reading Tricia's story. I'm very curious to find out just how many people Tricia's story has effected in this way, because I think it is incredibly encouraging to know that we all have the ability to be used to change lives.
Please, take a few seconds to answer the following poll honestly. You can answer multiple times if more than one member of your family can participate. And, feel free to comment about your decision.
