Blanca R. Soto Shares the Importance of Organ and Tissue Donation for the Hispanic Community

Blanca R. Soto, Executive Director Little Village Chamber of Commerce

“The donation of organs and tissue can save and improve many lives. The end of a life for one person, can be the beginning for another one. Why not give life to someone else if you can? Transplants can greatly improve a recipient’s health and quality of life and save or transform the life of that person. One single organ and tissue donor can save or improve the lives of more than 25 people. The number of people on the waiting list keeps getting longer, while the number of donors lags significantly behind.

To me, becoming an organ donor is more than just checking a box when you renew your driver’s license or State ID. It’s making the decision that you want to potentially save someone’s life.”
