Organ Donation

Around 10 million Floridians are already signed up as organ donors, but the need for these lifesaving procedures far outstrips supply. To promote additional donors are: Kim Gilmore, public education for Donate Life Florida and LifeQuest Organ Recovery Services; the organizations’ Donor Family Services Coordinator Pamela Rittenouse; Donor Parents Paul and Rebecca DeFrank, whose son Alex became a multiple donor upon his death in 2020; and Sarah Bender, whose mother Libby Smith was a heart recipient and passionate Donate Life ambassador.
