We invite you to watch these videos for a true sense of how organ, eye and tissue donation can change the lives of countless individuals and their families.
In an effort to increase awareness of organ, eye and tissue donation and encourage Iowans to register on the Iowa Donor Registry, My Angel Foundation created The Power of Yes — our new outreach program.
The Power of Yes means something different to everyone, especially when coming from a recipient versus a donor’s perspective.
For organ, eye or tissue recipients, the Power of Yes means the power to live their lives to the fullest, taking advantage of newfound health, and enjoying simple pleasures that many may take for granted, like family, friends, and hobbies.
For the families of donors, the Power of Yes means regaining some measure of control they lost during the most difficult time in their lives; it means honoring the wishes and memories of their loved ones so they can live on through others. And it’s a way of finding comfort in tragedy.
“THE POWER OF YES TO ME MEANS THAT BRIAN’S LIFE AND MEMORY COULD LIVE ON.”
— SHANNON, SISTER OF ORGAN DONOR
“I felt fantastic. Like I was Me again. And I could do the things I hadn’t been able to do being sick.”
— Rusty, Organ Donation Recipient
The Power of Yes is sponsored by My Angel Foundation.
