“Be a Blessing” is critically acclaimed jazz guitarist, Dan Peterson’s heartfelt work of beautiful, poignant and impassioned compositions written during the difﬁcult period in which his wife awaited a double lung transplant. Ann Peterson, who passed away in 2009 waited nearly three years for organs that never became available.
Currently, more than, 115,00 people in the U.S. alone are on waiting lists for a life- altering or life-saving organ transplant. In 2011, 6000 people died while waiting and 28535 people received organs and a new chance at life. Every day, approximately 132 people are added to the waiting list and 18 to 20 people die in the U.S. alone each day. Worldwide need is obviously greater.
A single donor can save or enhance the lives of up to 50 people. Receiving an organ transplant extends the recipients life by 20 to 30 years on average. It costs the donor nothing but a few minutes to register, which can be done usually through your driver license facility or through this link.
