By saying yes to donation you can make it possible for others to realize their hopes and dreams. You can bring comfort to a family worried about a loved one. All it takes is your decision to become an organ and tissue donor. Please get the facts and sign up today.


LifeShare would like to extend warm wishes to everyone with whom we came in contact during the past year – donor family members, transplant recipients, nurses, doctors, vendors and other healthcare providers who supported our mission to improve lives through organ, eye and tissue donation.

We would especially like to thank those individuals and corporate sponsors who generously gave of their time and their checkbooks. Every contribution is important but there are some special 2015 contributors we would like to especially recognize. They are: Asheville Eye Associates, Bill Trahan, Bridge to Life, Charlotte Gastroenterology and Hepatology, LifeNet Health, Red Ventures, Gary Simmons and the Save a Life Group.

As you plan your New Year Resolutions for 2015, don’t forget to add registering as an organ donor to the list. It’s the one New Year’s Resolution that’s easy to keep!


The Chris Henry Story originally ran on CBS Sports Thanksgiving Day 2010. The heart-warming story recalls the fatal accident that took the life of the Cincinnati Bengals wide-receiver, his mother’s courageous decision to donate his organs and the gift of life that followed for the four people who received his organs. LifeShare is pleased to have had a part in bringing the Chris Henry Story to life.

See and experience more inspirational donation and transplantation stories of hope.
