My guests and I, Tony Leverette and Rev. Gwendolyn Snell talked about the need to be organ, eye and tissue donors. Leverette, is a board member of Lifebanc and a Minority Community Outreach specialist.
Rev. Gwendolyn Snell is a two time kidney recipient and is waiting for a third transplant. There is a special need in minority communities. In the African-American community for example, 55-percent are recipients while only 35-percent have signed up to be donors.
