Donate Life California and ITVS Partner for D TOUR Community Cinema Screening

Posted on September 17, 2009
Currently there are more than 100,000 people waiting for a life-saving organ transplant, of which 20,000 on the wait list live in California. Due to a lack of donors, 18 patients die every day awaiting a second chance at life. Donate Life California and ITVS have recently partnered to spread awareness about organ donation for the upcoming Community Cinema screening of D TOUR in Oakland, CA at 6:00 PM, September 23, at the Oakland Asian Cultural Center. The film chronicles musician Pat Spurgeon’s search for a living kidney donor and the challenges associated with finding a viable match. Taking a few minutes to register as an organ and tissue donor can mean a lifetime to someone else. For those living in California, register on the Donate Life California Web site >> Find out about upcoming screenings of D TOUR near you >>
