Alonzo Mourning Wants You to Become An Organ Donor
This is the 15th observance of National Minority Organ Donor Awareness Day. An event founded by noted transplant surgeon Dr. Clive Callender of Howard University Hospital.

Watch the video below featuring kidney transplant recipient, Alonzo Mourning discussing this issue. Then go to organdonor.gov to find your state’s online donor registry.
